SPINILLO, Alina Galvão  e  ALMEIDA, Denise Dias. Understanding narrative and argumentative texts: is there any difference?. Arq. bras. psicol. [online]. 2014, vol.66, n.3, pp. 115-132. ISSN 1809-5267.

This study examines the relations between the understanding of texts and types of texts. It investigates whether the structural characteristics of texts of different types influence the reader's understanding. One hundred 9-year-old children were asked inferential questions about texts presenting different structural characteristics. Each child was asked to read a narrative and an argumentative text divided in parts. After answering the questions, the children were asked to justify their answers. These answers were categorized according to their level of coherence, plausibility and completeness. It was found that the structural characteristics of texts influence their understanding with regard to the nature of the inferences made by the reader.
