This thoughtful study, presenting a novel analytical framework, examines the use of anaphora in both written and conversational discourse. In particular, it examines the distribution of pronouns and full noun phrases in three different genres of English, and demonstrates the relationships between the hierarchical structure of discourses and the use of anaphoric phrases within those discourses.
