About the Authors
  • This thoughtful study, presenting a novel analytical framework, examines the use of anaphora in both written and conversational discourse. In particular, it examines the distribution of pronouns and full noun phrases in three different genres of English, and demonstrates the relationships between the hierarchical structure of discourses and the use of anaphoric phrases within those discourses.

    • Comparison of written and spoken discourses of ongoing importance for linguistic study
    • Fox combines linguistic theory and sociology-orientated conversation analysis for a sensitive examination of how discourse is produced
    • All the data are from the English language
