Prediction has become the dominant framework for explaining the functioning of human cognition.
Theories of visual and auditory perception argue that the brain is essentially a prediction machine,
and that viewers and listeners engage in prediction to prepare for upcoming events. Language
comprehension involves visual and auditory perception. The theoretical assumptions about these
perceptual processes have thus direct implications for our conception of language comprehension.
