Book Information


Title: Anaphors in Text
Subtitle: Cognitive, formal and applied approaches to anaphoric reference
Edited By: Monika Schwarz-Friesel
Manfred Consten
Mareile Hillevi Knees
Series Title: Studies in Language Companion Series 86

This volume contains a careful selection of papers concerned with actual
research questions on anaphoric reference, a subject of current interest
with various linguistic subdisciplines. This is reflected in this book as
it methodically covers broadly invested approaches from cognitive,
neurolinguistic, formal and computational perspectives, each contribution
representing the respective 'state of the art' on a high theoretical and
empirical level. The volume contains three thematic parts: Anaphors in
Cognitive, Text and Discourse Linguistics; The Syntax and Semantics of
Anaphors; and Neurolinguistic Studies on the reception of anaphoric
reference. The contributions investigate several Indo-European languages.
