Linguistic Field(s): Discourse Analysis; Pragmatics; Semantics

Meeting Description:

The starting point for the conference's theme is the connection between the
discourse structure and the use of referring expressions. It is well recognized
in the literature that the discourse affects the interpretation of referring
expressions and the space of anaphoric accessibility and that the use of
referring expressions restricts the set of possible discourse interpretations.
The workshop will explore four related topics to be analyzed in order to achieve
a broad crosslinguistic understanding of reference in discourse in natural

- Discourse and reference
- Specificity
- Point of view
- Discourse particles
