Title: Anaphora, Discourse, and Understanding: Evidence from English and French
Written By: Francis Cornish
Description:

In this ambitious work, Dr. Francis Cornish sets out an original theory of anaphora and deixis, and proposes a new and elegant theoretical model to represent the transfer of meaning in discourse. He brings together work by linguists, formal semanticists, psychologists, and researchers in artificial intelligence, as well as drawing on his own extensive experimental work on a variety of corpora of different genres in French and English.
