Original Paper

Abstract

This paper considers intersentential binding of logophoric expressions, using Japanese zibun as a test case. It is shown that such binding is only possible between discourse segments connected by a subordinating discourse relation. A variant of dynamic predicate logic is proposed to analyze these facts.
