(fall-rise tone: implying ?some other book‘) 131．第 18 题 What is reference (所指)? 答案: Reference means what a linguistic form refers to in the real, physical world; it deals with the relationship between the linguistic element and the non-linguistic world of experience. For instance, if we say ?The dog is barking‘, we must be talking about a certain dog in the situation; here, ?dog‘ refers to a dog known to both the speaker and the hearer. This is the reference of the word ?dog‘ in this particular situation. 132. 第 19 题 How does a sentence differ from an utterance (语句)? 答案: A sentence and an utterance differ in that a sentence is a grammatical and self-contained unit in
isolation from context, whereas utterance is something a speaker utters in a certain situation with a certain purpose. 133．第 133 题 What is cross-association (叠加)? 答案: Cross-association refers to the internal interference, or the close association of the two similar linguistic forms which leads to confusion, e. g. *The apricot is too sour to eat it. [I can‘t eat it. ] 134．第 134 题 How are sentence meaning (语义) and utterance meaning (语句意义) different from each other? 答案: Sentence meaning is the abstract, intrinsic property of the sentence itself in terms of predication. Whereas utterance meaning is the realization of the abstract meaning of a sentence in a real situation of communication, or in a context. So the difference between sentence meaning and utterance meaning is that the former is abstract and decontextualized, while the latter is concrete and context-dependent.
