‘Andrew Barss's Anaphora is a dynamic contribution, full of interesting and insightful essays. I recommend it in the highest possible terms.’ David Lebeaux, NEC Research Institute <!--end-->

‘This is an outstanding book. Relating linguistics to other cognitive domains in a non-trivial way, it clearly addresses an impressive number of issues important for our understanding of the design and nature of language.’ Pierre Pica, Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, Paris, France

"Andrew Narss has done Linguistics and its related fields a good service by putting together a collection of papers that address a number of important issues in the study of anaphora. The major selling point of the book under considersation is two fold. First the articles contained in the volume are of high quality ... Secondly, the book represents a welcome attempt to relate linguistics to cognitive science, thus helping to shed new light on our quest to attain a better understanding of human cognition ... the book deserves to be read by anyone who is seriously interested in the study of anaphora." Linguistics, volume 42 2006, Cambridge University Press
