The survey and analyses are based on a rich collection of data drawn from a wide range of the world's languages.

Yan Huang is Professor of Theoretical Linguistics at the University of Reading. He was a College Research Fellow in Linguistics at the University of Cambridge from 1988-1991, and a University Lecturer in Linguistics at the University of Oxford from 1991-1993.
He is the author of three books: Yingyu Changyong Duanyu Bianxi (Fujian Jiaoyu 1985), The Syntax and Pragmatics of Anaphora (Cambridge University Press 1994), and Anaphora: A Cross-Linguistic Study (Oxford University Press 2000).
"This book is very thorough in its coverage of topics within the field. Mindful of its student audience, it also has extensive study questions, examples and glossaries. My overall impressions is that it is a valuable textbook to anyone in the field of pragmatics." --Linguist List
