ABSTRACT

This paper deals with how words that have semantic relations function as ‘cohesion’. That is, the lexical semantic relations not only simply represent the semantic relations between words in lexicon, but also act as the mechanism of formation of sentences or text. Unlike ‘demonstrative pronoun’, words that have semantic relations have characteristic, inherent functions in regard to anaphora. A hyperonym or a synonym opens up another possibility, that of introducing an implicative element into the meaning, which is absent in the case of the pronoun. Also, ‘demonstrative pronoun’ generally has the restrictions of distance between the antecedent and anaphora, whereas a hyperonym or a synonym has a very little the restrictions of it.
