Abstract:

The study of person reference stands at the cross-roads of linguistics,
anthropology and psychology. As one aspect of an ethnography of communication,
this book deals with a single problem — how one knows who is being talked
about in conversation — from a rich and varied ethnographic perspective.
Through a combination of grammatical agreement and free pronouns, Bininj
Gunwok possesses a pronominal system that, according to current theoretical
accounts in linguistics, should facilitate clear cut reference. However, the
descriptions of Bininj Gunwok conversation in this volume demonstrate that
frequently a vast gulf lies between knowing that, say, an object is '3rd
singular', and actually knowing who it refers to. Achieving reference to
people in Bininj Gunwok can involve a delicate and refined set of calculations
which are part of a deliberate and artful way of speaking. Speakers draw on a
diverse set of grammatical and lexical devices all underpinned by shared
knowledge about a diverse range of social relationships and cultural
practices.
