FERREIRA, Sandra Patrícia Ataíde and DIAS, Maria da Graça B. B.. Reader and reading: considerations about text types and meaning construction. Psicol. Reflex. Crit. [online]. 2005, vol.18, n.3, pp.323-329. ISSN 0102-7972. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-79722005000300005.
The present paper emphasizes reading as an activity of meaning construction which implies the dynamic relationship between reader and text. First we present the idea that reading varies accord to the reader and his aims. The reader can concept it as a cognitive- affective activity and a social practice. Later we discuss the text concepts, context and textual types, with the focus in the idea the meaning is constituted in the dialectic relationship among author/text/reader/context. This relationship is which offers many meaning and at the same time, gives limits to the possibilities of the variations and also determines the game of the implicit and the explicit.
Keywords : Reading; meaning construction; context; textual types.
