Abstract

This paper presents a coherent account of the sentence internal reading of the English adjectives same and different. These adjectives are argued to have an anaphoric property in the sense that they are assigned a referential value by some external source in the way that anaphoric pronouns and other anaphoric expressions are. The analysis is empirically motivated by the observed parallelism between anaphoric expressions and same/different with respect to such a grammatical phenomenon as the crossover effect. Although the present analysis is not a total alternative to the previous study in Carlson (1987), an empirical ground is provided for maintaining the lines pursued here.
