Message 2: Workshop on Indirect Anaphora

Date: Tue, 07 Nov 1995 14:30:57 Workshop on Indirect Anaphora
From: "Dr Tony McEnery" <mcenerycomp.lancs.ac.uk>
Subject: Workshop on Indirect Anaphora

CALL FOR PAPERS: IndiAna Workshop

In immediate connection to the general sessions of the DAARC96
Colloquium, at Lancaster University, a workshop on indirect anaphora
will take place. The workshop will start in the afternoon of the 18th
and end about noon on the 19th of July.

The IndiAna Workshop focus on the issue of indirect anaphora in noun
phrase processing, where 'anaphora' implies a relation of dependence
between the noun phrase and preceding discourse, and 'indirect'
implies that the interpretation involves some kind of processing beyond
that of merely retrieving a discourse referent already introduced by
another noun phrase. Examples of indirect anaphora have been
discussed under various headings, such as associative anaphora,
inferrables, antecedent construal, discourse deixis, abstract object
anaphora, 'paycheck' sentences, plural anaphors with split antecedents,
etc. We think it is high time to bring together researchers working on
these different aspects of indirect anaphora and therefore welcome
contributions from all research areas connected to this topic.
