accounts of anaphora are inadequate to handle Chinese. It consists of three chapters dealing in turn with empty categories, control, and long-distance reflexivization. Part II, 'The Pragmatics of Anaphora', commences with the heart of the book: two chapters elaborating the author's proposed neo.

The syntax and pragmatics of anaphora: A study with special reference to Chinese (Cambridge Studies in Linguistics 70). The book closes on a final chapter which summarises the major findings and draws theoretical implications on the relationship between pragmatics and syntax (chapter 9).

In his analysis of zero anaphora, which is so frequent in Chinese that it has been termed the “norm”, the author sharply criticises Chomsky’s typology of Empty Categories. The Handbook of Pragmatics is a collection of newly commissioned articles that provide an authoritative and accessible introduction to the field, including an overview of the foundations of pragmatic theory and a detailed examination of the rich and varied theoretical and empirical subdomains of pragmatics.

Contains 32 newly commissioned articles that outline the central themes and challenges. Introduction. Anaphora can be generally defined as “subsequent reference to an entity already introduced in discourse” (Safir a; see Representing Anaphoric Dependencies).The study of anaphora spans various fields of linguistics, from formal syntax and semantics to linguistic typology and pragmatics, and from computational linguistics to language processing and language acquisition.

His published work includes The Syntax and Pragmatics of Anaphora (Cambridge University Press,re-issued ), Anaphora: A Cross-Linguistic Study (Oxford University Press, ), and Pragmatics (Oxford University Press, ). He has also published a number of articles and reviews in leading international journals of linguistics.

However, the author does not spell out what he thinks the syntax and semantics of anaphora should look like on a neo-Gricean story like his own. One can find occasional hints which are never explicitly stated, though. The book expresses the widely accepted claim that pragmatics operates (mostly).

This book develops a pragmatic theory of anaphora within the neo-Gricean framework of conversational implicature. Chomsky claims that anaphora reflects underlying principles of innate Universal Grammar, and the view is widely held that only syntactic and semantic factors are crucial to intrasentential anaphora.

It is also a valuable resource for scholars in related fields. - ;This introduction to pragmatics - the study of language in use - provides an authoritative and comprehensive account of its central topics and a guide to the latest research. It opens with a discussion of the scope, meaning, and history of pragmatics from Aristotle to the present.

Pragmatics is one of the rapidly growing fields in contemporary linguistics. Huang provides an accessible and comprehensive introduction to the central topics in pragmatics. The syntax and pragmatics of anaphora: a study with special reference to Chinese.

[Yan Huang] -- This book develops a pragmatic theory of anaphora within the neo-Gricean framework of conversational implicature. This book focuses on the need for a competitive theory of anaphora and a concrete proposal for a particular competitive theory that has consequences for the architecture of natural language : Ken Safir.

Chomsky claims that anaphora reflects underlying principles of innate Universal Grammar, and the view is widely held that only syntactic and semantic factors are crucial to intrasentential anaphora.

His books include internationally acclaimed The Syntax and Pragmatics of Anaphora (Cambridge University Press,re-issued ), Anaphora: A Cross-Linguistic Study (Oxford University Press, ), and Pragmatics (Oxford University Press, ).

He has also published a number of articles and reviews in leading international journals of Cited by: 3. The first is concerned with the 'central topics' in pragmatics as Huang sees it. The first part explained implicatures, presupposition, speech acts and deixis. The second part titled 'pragmatics and interfaces' addresses the relation between cognition, semantics and syntax and pragmatics.

The book is adopting the Anglo-American view of pragmatics/5(12). Previous experimental research has shown that the syntax-discourse interface can be a locus of deficits for learners, even at very advanced levels.

In this paper an L2 Spanish corpus is used to investigate Anaphora Resolution (AR) at the syntax-discourse interface (i.e., how null/overt pronouns and NP subjects refer to their antecedents in discourse). Yan Huang is Professor of Theoretical Linguistics at the University of Auckland.

He has a PhD from the University of Cambridge and a DPhil from the University of Oxford, and has taught linguistics at both universities.

His published work includes The Syntax and Pragmatics of Anaphora (CUP, ) and Anaphora: A Cross-Linguistic Study (OUP, /5(46). Pragmatics is the study of how language is used and how the different uses of language determine semantics and syntax.

Much of this book is about language pragmatics, about how humans use language to achieve their goals. You can begin by stating that language is a form of g: anaphora. Thirdly anaphora has provided a testing ground for a number of competing hypotheses concerning the relationship between syntax, semantics, and pragmatics in linguistic theory."

In linguistics, anaphora (/ ə ˈ n æ f ər ə /) is the use of an expression whose interpretation depends upon another expression in context (its antecedent or postcedent).

In a narrower sense, anaphora is the use of an expression that depends specifically upon an antecedent expression and thus is contrasted with cataphora, which is the use of an expression that depends upon a postcedent.
