Reference

Here are two senses for reference:

  1. Reference is the symbolic relationship that a linguistic expression has with the concrete object or abstraction it represents.
  2. Reference is the relationship of one linguistic expression to another, in which one provides the information necessary to interpret the other.

A pronoun refers to the noun antecedent that is used to interpret it.
