Example text

I have argued against attempts to explicate IA merely in terms of associability conditions. Instead, the principle of conceptual plausibility is the most dominant constraint which determines the process of anaphora resolution. IA should be approached within the text-world model approach which takes contextual, representational and procedural factors of the plausibility criterion into account. There is no clear-cut distinction between direct and indirect anaphora in text, showing that the most typical examples of direct and indirect anaphors may best be regarded as two extremes on a continuum of textual reference, thereby weakening the claim for a strict distinction between the two types.

In order to provide a full account of how indirect and direct anaphors are interpreted, a cognitive theory of reference resolution must include both representational and procedural factors. So far I have concentrated on the various instances of anaphors in text and the mental knowledge structures needed for their interpretation. In the next section I want to discuss briefly some of the linguistic and cognitive constraints on indirect anaphora, more precisely on the associability in the anchoring process.
