Anaphoric Referencing: A Cohesive Device in Written and Spoken Discourse
Communication is achieved through texts or stretches of language. Because modern linguists are interested in communication and language use, they look into these stretches of language to see the coherence features otherwise known as cohesive devices that made them \'hang together\' to convey meaning. This study sought to find out what these devices are and paid attention to anaphoric references as a cohesive device. It looked into what differentiated anaphora from deictic expressions and the different language mechanisms for anaphoric referencing.
