Reading comprehension needs the readers to concentrate on the development of lnguistics skills and on experiential content. Generally, the process of raeding and reading comprehension can be understood as the essence of comprehension is captured in one simple principle. Comprehension is building bridges between the new and the know. In this analysis there are three models of discourse comprehension that have come to dominate the field of pyscholinguistics, they are : Kintsch and Van Dijk model, Sanford and Garrod’s memory-focus model, and Gernsbasher;s Structure Building Framework. The three models have their own characteristics which make them different in language processing. In discourse processing, researchers follow standard linguistics theory in assuming representational modularity.There are two criteria to be considered in the process, they are syntactic category information and sensesemantic information. They play a big role in language processes started from sentence comprehension to discourse comprehension. Discourse understanding is a process which anchors the interpretation of the sentence to the representation of the prior text.
