Carroll, John M.
Language and Speech, v23 n4 p309-22 Oct-Dec 1980
Analyzes excerpts from eighteen of Robert M. Krauss's dialog transcripts in order to characterize the sequential and structural relations between naming and describing. Specifically, investigates how a referential description is shortened into a name through use, and what parts of antecedent descriptive phrases are selected to form the consequent name. (MES)
