Sample text

Another source of high anaphoricity lexical mentions is a discourse strategy that Fox (1987) refers to as a return pop: reinstatement of a reference following the intervention of some number of predications in which that referent does not play a role. The exchange in (15) gives an example of a return pop: (15) A: Do you have any children? B: Yeah, I have two, two boys, twelve and sixteen. A: Twelve and sixteen. [Five turns intervene] A: What, uh, do you feel like you have any time­ B: [Laughter] A: to spend with them?

In these examples, the lexical mention from which the target pronominal subject is traced is shown in bold, as are the target and subsequent mentions: (21) No persistence: she → no subsequent mention A: But, um, my, again, my mother back in Indiana, we had a quilting frame in our basement, and she would—she would quilt whole quilts by herself. B: Oh my god. A: Um, yes, which I was always amazed. I have one of them, um, but, uh, you know to have the quilting frame and then to actually do that—it’s a tremendous amount of work.

This scale has one more category than that used for anaphoricity coding, as shown in Table 3: it contains an additional type of coreference link, lexical persistence. We added this category in order to determine whether lexical-subject predications might be defective topic proffers, requiring secondary introduction of the subjectdenotatum in a subsequent turn. The passages in (17)–(20) give examples of each of the respective values on the topic-persistence scale. (17) No persistence A: And then the power went off again.
