Abstract : In this work, we are interested in the computation of logical representations of discourse. We argue that all discourse connectives are anaphors obeying different sets of constraints and show how this view allows one to account for the semantically parenthetical use of attitude verbs and verbs of report (e.g., think, say) and for sequences of conjunctions (A CONJ 1 B CONJ 2 C). We implement this proposal in event semantics using de Groote (2006)’s dynamic framework.
