Hi All,
resuming in a rather scholastic way what has been said thus far about
we have Exophoric  Refer. when the reference is to the general speech
situation (=not  intratextual) or Endophoric (=intratextual) Refer.: see
Randy's mail of June 1st. Endophor. Refer. can be anaphoric  (looking
backward) or cataphoric (looking forward).  As Mira Ariel correctly
underlines, Reference  concerns  language use and not its form.
Consequently, Christian's suggestion to Martin about   'endophora' is
correct .
 Am I missing something ?
