Book Information

   

Title: Reference and Referent Accessibility
Written By: Jeanette K. Gundel
Edited By: Thorstein Fretheim
Series Title: Pragmatics and Beyond New Series
Description:

The papers in this volume are concerned with the question of how a speaker's intended referent is interpreted by the addressee. Topics include the interpretation of coreferential vs. disjoint reference, the role of intonation, syntactic form and animacy in reference understanding, and the way in which general principles of utterance interpretation constrain possible interpretations of referring expressions. The collection arises from a workshop on reference and referent accessibility which was held at the 4th International Pragmatics Conference in Kobe, Japan, July 25-30, 1993.
