Abstract:

It is a major challenge for linguists to explore the relations between
referential choice and the discourse structure in dialogues, because,
unlike written modes of discourse, dialogue as an interactional mode of
discourse needs careful treatment for linguistic analysis. This book
investigates how discourse entities are linked with topic chaining and
discourse coherence by showing that the choice and the distribution of
referring expressions is correlated with center transition patterns in the
centering framework. It provides original empirical research into the use
of referring expressions in English and Japanese task-based dialogues, and
applies and extends theoretical frameworks which attempt to account for
local and global discourse coherence. Using a discourse-based integrated
approach to anaphora resolution, Yoshida proposes a unified account on the
patterns of use of referring expressions. The book will be of interest to
discourse analysts, computational linguists, scholars of semantics and
pragmatics, and cross-linguistics researchers.
