Reflexivity and temporality in discourse deixis
In this paper discourse deixis and anaphora are treated as two separate phenomena. It is argued that discourse deixis is a special case of metacommunication on the one hand and of time deixis on the other. Since discourse deixis focuses on a part of the discourse itself, it is a form of reflexive language use. In order to identify a segment of the ongoing discourse, time deictic expressions have to be used. This combination of both a reflexive and a time deictic element is not inherent in anaphora.
