C07 - Forward and backward functions of discourse anaphora

This project investigates the fine-grained nature of prominence relations between referential expressions. It examines the interpretive preferences and the forward potential of different anaphoric expressions – with a particular focus on demonstratives – in contexts with more than two antecedents, using behavioural methods. It also assesses the temporal dynamics of the underlying processes by means of event-related potentials. It asks how backward and forward referential functions are influenced by potential prominence-lending cues from different linguistic levels (sentence, discourse and prosody).
