This second point suggests that the interpretation of the two utterances is bound together in the sense that they are each part of a text which is , as a whole , consistent with the principle of relevance . In other words , the speaker of [ 14 ] could be said to be optimising relevance over the whole text . In [ 17 ] ( repeated below ) the author is recalling his initial impressions of the writer , John Gardner . The first segment ( a ) contains a description of Gardner 's appearance which , although it may list the respects in which Gardner deviated from Carver 's idea of a writer , does not necessarily communicate an accurate impression of Carver 's initial reaction . However , the reformulation in [ b ] is not more accurate because it is more specific .

In this way , the original formulation contributes to the overall relevance just as much as the reformulation does . This suggests that even when writers explicitly indicate that they are correcting themselves , as for example in [ 34 ] , the original formulation contributes to the overall relevance of the text . ( The reformulations have been italicised for the purpose of the present discussion ) . In this passage , in which the narrator is recalling his father 's days as a medium and healer , there are three segments which might be described as reformulations , but only one is presented as a correction . In each case the reformulation suggests a line of processing different from the one suggested by the original .

My final choice from last week 's ` Independent ' was the example that provoked me into attempting this subject in the first place .

Nonetheless , there is more than one pattern of results which could produce a significant average correlation between risk and recall . One possibility is that certain junctions are both intrinsically more memorable and more risky than others . A second , and more interesting , possibility is that subjects are actually recalling the situations in which they personally felt at risk irrespective of any other features of the junction . If this were the case then a junction would only be more likely to be recalled if the subject had actually felt at risk even if they knew it to be a generally dangerous junction . The first possibility can be assessed by using the mean risk ratings and the percentage of subjects recalling a junction given in Table 3.2 .
