Locally Contingent Categorization in Discourse.
Overstreet, Maryann; Yule, George
Discourse Processes, v23 n1 p83-98 1997
Investigates creation and interpretation of nonlexicalized categories within discourse, as indicated by the use of general extenders. Shows that such categories are locally contingent, depend on contextually salient features for identifying similarity among members, can be created through contrast or contiguity, and clearly depend on assumptions of intersubjectivity for their coconstruction and interpretation.
