This volume features the latest scholarship on cognitive processes in interpersonal relationships. It explores such questions as: What special knowledge must a person have to participate in a relationship? What particular language structures do people typically use in entering or conducting relationships?

Contributors examine the cognitive processes that individuals bring to relationships, ranging from their thought patterns and attributional styles to the ways in which they recall relationship events and use shared knowledge.
