Subject: Grammar/Typology, Huang's Anaphora by Yan Huang

	 Anaphora: A Cross-linguistic Study
	 (Oxford Studies in Typology and Linguistic Theory)
	 Yan Huang
This is the most extensive cross-linguistic account of anaphora ever
Anaphora is at the centre of work on the interface between syntax,
semantics and pragmatics. It is also a subject of key current interest
in psycho- and computational linguistics and to research on the
philosophy of language and language in cognitive science.
Yan Huang provides an extensive yet accessible overview of the major
contemporary issues surrounding anaphora and gives a critical survey
of the many and diverse contemporary approaches to it. He also
advances the neo-Gricean pragmatic theory of anaphora he has developed
in earlier work. The survey and analysis are based on a rich
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 linguisitcs.
Yan Huang (PhD, Cambridge; DPhil, Oxford) is Reader in Linguistics at
the University of Reading. He has taught previously at the University
of Cambridge and the University of Oxford. He is the author of the
internationally acclaimed The Syntax and Pragmatics of Anaphora
(Cambridge University Press, 1994). He has also published a number of
articles and reviews in major international journals of linguistics.
