Abstract:
When proposing a description of the data he observes, the linguist must make sure that his observations may
be also regularly made by other persons. In this paper, we introduce a typology of anaphoric and referential
relations and an experiment which aims at assessing that this typology is operational. Given three newspaper
articles, five students were asked to identify anaphoric and/or referential relations between expressions and
referents. This inter-subjectivity test confirms results already obtained: coreference is an operational notion,
but the perspicuity of other relations is not obvious.
