Sample text

Thus, this system proposed in English is relevant to the discussion for appropriate analysis of different definite descriptions as the opposition and overlap of three forms this/that/it. Traditionally, demonstratives in English, this/that and these/those, have been discussed as one type of referring expression on a scale of proximity: ‘near the speaker’ versus ‘not near the speaker’. This distinction serves to extend the observation in descriptive approaches to reference in discourse: Halliday & Hasan (1976), Halliday (1994), Quirk et al.

It may be the case, for instance, that demonstratives are designed to highlight some functions such as indication of proximity or distality, specificity, markedness, and pointing-like function. These functions can be integrated into the focusing function in spoken discourse, where the distribution of demonstratives can interact with the discourse factors. It is significant to note that the accessibility scale of referential system can provide a pragmatic account for the choice and distribution of demonstratives (cf.

4), Halliday’s descriptive system represents the semantic interrelation between deixis and anaphora in terms of specificity, which can account for the cross-referential nature of demonstratives on a scale of referring expressions. Chapter 3 further explores the fact that deictic expressions can create relevant cohesive ties with the other cohesive discourse anaphora. Cohesive ties are generally defined as linguistic links between elements in connected sentences of a text (Halliday and Hasan: 1976), and this cohesiveness can play an important role in bridging a situational and a textual context.
