Processes Involved in the Resolution of Explicit Anaphors.
O'Brien, Edward J.; Raney, Gary E.; Albrecht, Jason E.; Rayner, Keith
Discourse Processes, v23 n1 p1-24 1997
Finds that explicit anaphors only reactivated undergraduate students' target antecedents when they are both lexically and conceptually identical to a target antecedent; but as distance between an anaphor and its antecedent increased, even an explicit anaphor did not reactivate a target antecedent. Shows that distant antecedents were reactivated with the addition of an adjective modifier to the anaphoric noun phrase. (SR)
