- the anaphoric relation is one of the two kinds of endophoric relations
- For the sentence in 16a, in order to indicate the anaphoric relation between the subject of the matrix sentence ( the antecedent of the logophor ) and the logophoric pronoun, we would need to specify that x = v 2.
- The pro-clitic "'va "'and the post-clitic "'di "'both mark anaphoric relations . "'va "'is placed immediately before the noun, and codes for discourse-internal anaphora ( that is, reference to a term that has already been introduced in the earlier context ) . "'di "'immediately follows the noun, and seems to refer to the immediate context preceding it ( comparable with the English anaphoric use of'this').
