This paper pleads for reviewing the established attribution of ambiguous pronominal reference to specific genres, registers or discourse context. The (inter)subjectivity notion enables a more extensive inquiry of (the occurrence of) these phenomena in particular registers and genres, handling the way in which the (inter)locutor is reckoned with in each genre.
