Summary
  • (Publisher-supplied data) Understanding any communication depends on the listener or reader recognizing that some words refer to what has already been said or written (his, its, he, there, etc.). This mode of reference, anaphora, involves complicated cognitive and syntactic processes, which people usually perform unerringly, but which present formidable problems for the linguist and cognitive scientist trying to explain precisely how comprehension is achieved. Yan Huang provides an extensive and accessible overview of the major contemporary issues surrounding anaphora and gives a critical survey of the many and diverse contemporary approaches to it. He provides by far the fullest cross-linguistic account yet published: Dr Huang's survey and analysis are based on a rich collection of data drawn from around 450 of the world's languages
  • (Publisher-supplied data) Yan Huang is Reader in Linguistics, Department of Linguistic Science, University of Reading
  • "Yan Huang provides an extensive yet accessible overview of the major contemporary issues surrounding anaphora. He also advances the neo-Gricean pragmatic theory of anaphora he has developed in earlier work. The survey and analysis are based on a collection of data drawn from a representative range of some 550 of the world's languages. The topics the author covers include binding and control, null subjects and objects, long-distance reflexivization, VP-ellipsis, logophoricity, bridging-cross reference, switch-reference, and discourse anaphora." "Written by a leading expert on anaphora, this book will be the standard point of reference for all those interested in this important topic in theoretical linguistics."--BOOK JACKET
