Reference and Representation Paul Dekker ILLC/Department of Philosophy This paper motivates a unified treatment of anaphoric and demonstrative pronouns in a dynamic epistemic predicate logic (EPL). Pronouns and demonstratives are dealt with using model-theoretically construed partial objects, which are understood to represent sources of information. The paper also discusses to what extent the system and various alternative theories of pronoun interpretation qualify as representational. EPL can be seen to be a theory of (singular) pronouns which is as weakly representational as possible.
