Title: SPLITTING THE REFERENCE TIME: THE ANALOGY BETWEEN NOMINAL AND TEMPORAL ANAPHORA REVISITED.
Authors: R. Nelken and N. Francez
PDFLCL9502.pdf
Abstract: The analysis in (Partee, 1984) of quantified sentences, introduced by a temporal connective, gives the wrong truth conditions when the connective is {\em before} or {\em after}. In this paper, we show how splitting the different roles of Reichenbach's {\em reference time}, may be used in order to solve this problem. We further enhance the analogy between pronominal and temporal anaphora, by proposing an analog of plural NP-anaphora in the form of temporal anaphora involving multiple event antecedents and an analog of an {\em E-type} analysis of pronouns in the analysis of quantified narrative discourse.
