Cognitive properties of conjunctions and disjunctions.

Thinking with conjunctions and disjunctions has long intrigued researchers in the fields of language, reasoning, and judgment and decision-making - the age-old question of whether disjunctions are inclusive or exclusive by default has remained largely unanswered, for instance. My contribution is to demonstrate that perceptual cues in processing actual or imaginary objects, as well as schemas of actions stored in long-term memory contribute to individual differences both in disjunctive interpretation and in judging the felicity of conjunction and disjunction structures.
