This study explores discourse deixis, a topic which has thus far received
little attention in empirical research. Discourse deixis means the
reference to parts or aspects of the ongoing discourse and/or text. Common
examples are "see above" or "as I mentioned before". The approach of this
study is corpus-based, that is, it identifies and classifies all
discourse-deictic references in the corpora of various kinds of texts. From
the evidence thus gained a new theory of discourse deixis is derived.
