Frames

September 4th, 2010 No comments

The frame contains information on how to use the frame, what to expect next, and what to do when these expectations are not met. Some information in the frame is generally unchanged while other information, stored in “terminals,” usually changes. Different frames may share the same terminals.

A frame’s terminals are already filled with default values, which are based on how the human mind works. For example, when a person is told “a boy kicks a ball,” most people will be able to visualize a particular ball (such as a familiar soccer ball) rather than imagining some abstract ball with no attributes.
