This volume contains a careful selection of papers concerned with actual research questions on anaphoric reference, a subject of current interest with various linguistic subdisciplines. This is reflected in this book as it methodically covers broadly invested approaches from cognitive, neurolinguistic, formal and computational perspectives, each contribution representing the respective ‘state of the art’ on a high theoretical and empirical level. The volume contains three thematic parts: Anaphors in Cognitive, Text- and Discourse Linguistics; The Syntax and Semantics of Anaphors; and Neurolinguistic Studies on the reception of anaphoric reference. The contributions investigate several Indo-European languages.

“The book addresses a wide range of issues in a number of specific disciplines (corpus linguistics, neurolinguistics, syntactic and semantic theories). It is therefore a commendable attempt to give a fairly comprehensive take on a single linguistic phenomenon, anaphora. It will therefore be welcomed by all those interested in an overall view that takes into account its many facets.”
