Co-reference and a Sequence of Designators


0    Introduction

The problem to be discussed in the present paper belongs to the subject matter discussed not only under the term ‘co-reference’ but also under such terms as ‘anaphora’ or ‘anaphor’ (the two latter terms are used, for example, in Fox 1996). Originally the present author dealt with the problem in his paper “Reference operations in sequence: Co-reference,” which was given at the 21st Linguistics Colloquium in Oosterhesselen (Netherlands), in 1986. Unfortunately, the paper was not submitted for publication in the Proceedings of the Colloquium but a corresponding version was published in Polish in 1987 as “Istota, typy i formalne wykładniki współodniesienia (koreferencji)” (= The nature, types and formal exponents of co-reference).

In the present paper the original problem is resumed in the light of the theoretical, descriptive, and comparative work the present author carried out in the meantime. One of the innovations is the concept of a designator (which is broader than the original concept of a reference operation) and that of a sequence of designators (instead of a sequence of reference operations). These concepts were introduced by the present author in his paper “Definiteness and the dynamics of designators in sequence” published in 1998. Sequences of designators and their types will be a background for explaining the nature of co-reference.
