The Challenge of Metafictional Anaphora

    OnderzoeksoutputAcademicpeer review

    Samenvatting

    I argue that pronominal anaphora across mixed parafictional/metafictional discourse (e.g. In The Lord of the Rings, Frodoi goes through an immense mental struggle. Hei is an intriguing fictional character!) poses a problem for current dynamic approaches to fiction. I evaluate different possible solutions in a workspace account based on a descriptivist approach, Maier’s psychologistic DRT, Zalta’s logic of abstract objects and Recanati’s dot-object analysis of fictional characters.
