Reading tip: Hunting for signal words in texts
Something a bit special -- in a chat, I dug around reading recommendations to become a better reader and filtered for English sources.
Here's one where I once found a list of signal words in text, e.g.:
schema, model, allegory, analogy, hypothesis, metaphor, representation, simile, theory.
Keith Oatley and Maja Djikic (2008): Writing as Thinking, Review of General Psychology 1, 2008, Vol. 12, S. 9--27.
This is but a piece of the overall Zettelkasten puzzle. Was nice to see English terms for a change back when I read this. Sascha and I practiced hunting for definitions and arguments etc. for a while but I just haven't found any other English source at that time.
Notably absent from the Oatley/Djikic article: a reference to Luhmann http://luhmann.surge.sh/learning-how-to-read
For trivia, here're the titles of the notes I created that reference this book:
- 201306171859 Notes promote thinking about feelings
- 201306160915 Pen as thinking machine
- 201306160913 Analogy of note-taking to the Turing machine
- 201306160908 Note taking makes thinking easier
- 201306160853 Models necessary for thinking and cognition
- 201306160850 Signal words for model building in texts
