Err.. Exophora can be either deixis or what?
yea either deixis or.....? im waiting.....
This is by no means a definition... "In linguistics, exophora is reference to something extralinguistic, and contrasts with endophora." That's just giving an example of what it isn't. soldierx40k (talk) 01:31, 13 February 2008 (UTC)
"The Queen" is a bad example. It can easily occur in a sentence of a country that has no queen, in which case it often is understood to refer to the queen of England (at least that's how it works in Germany), just like "der Kaiser" or "the Tsar" are (or were) understood in English to refer to the respective specific heads of state.
