Pronouns/Antecedents/Anaphora

Pronoun: pro-form that substitutes for a noun/noun phrase with/without determiner. The replaced phrase is the antecedent.

Antecedent: the noun/noun phrase to which an anaphor refers in a coreference; a clause esp. when anaphor is a demonstrative.

Anaphor: instance of an expression referring to another.

*********

in an act of pity your hands
are quietly offered, and are held at arm's
length, because they would be gentle.

Because I am not gentle my voice
is harsh, and my hands likewise. Because
I have nothing for you, and am wrong.

So it is to be wrong. To be at a loss
and unhappy, which is this loss
of one's happiness, in one who had held it.

~ R. Creeley
