Subject: Can relatives be considered a form of reference?

Dear List:
I hope somebody can help me answer the following question.

Can relatives (that, which, where, whose, what, ect) be considered a form
of reference?

In utterances such as
"Any procedure which tends to commercialize human organs must be considered
morally unacceptable"
or
"Liam Donaldson, the British government�s chief medical officer whose
report recommended therapeutic clonin, said it has the greatest potential
to relieve human suffering"

the relatives WHICH and WHOSE are clearly anaphoric to me, since their
meaning has to be retrieved from preceding text. However, these words are
not included in the descriptions of REFERENCE I have consulted.

Thanks,

Susana

not find any recent studies done in the field after
 1990, except Baialystok's "Communication Strategies".
I will be glad if anyone can provide me the references
