Cataphora in English Grammar
- An Introduction to Punctuation
- Ph.D., Rhetoric and English, University of Georgia
- M.A., Modern English and American Literature, University of Leicester
- B.A., English, State University of New York
In English grammar , cataphora is the use of a pronoun or other linguistic unit to refer ahead to another word in a sentence (i.e., the referent ). Adjective: cataphoric . Also known as anticipatory anaphora, forward anaphora, cataphoric reference , or forward reference .
Cataphora and anaphora are the two main types of endophora--that is, reference to an item within the text itself.
The word that gets its meaning from a subsequent word or phrase is called a cataphor . The subsequent word or phrase is called the antecedent , referent , or head .
Anaphora vs. Cataphora
Some linguists use anaphora as a generic term for both forward and backward reference. The term forward(s) anaphora is equivalent to cataphora .
Examples and Uses of Cataphora
In the following examples, cataphors are in italics and their referents are in bold.
- "Why do we envy him , the bankrupt man ?" (John Updike, Hugging the Shore , 1984)
- A few weeks before he died, my father gave me an old cigar box filled with faded letters.
- "In 'The Pendulum Years,' his history of the 1960s, Bernard Levin writes of the 'collective insanity which seized Britain.'" ( The London Evening Standard , February 8, 1994, quoted by Katie Wales in Personal Pronouns in Present-Day English . Cambridge University Press, 1996)
- "If she were alive today, [Barbara] Tuchman would surely be preparing to pen fresh furious pages tonight, as the president seeks to rally his faltering domestic popularity with summonses of support." (Martin Kettle, "If He Resists the Siren Voice of Folly, Blair 's Legacy Is Secure." The Guardian , June 25, 2005)
- "You must remember this : A kiss is just a kiss, A sigh is just a sigh ." (Herman Hupfeld, "As Time Goes By," 1931)
- " This , I now realize, was a very bad idea-- suggesting we do whatever Terry Crews wants for the day ." (Joel Stein, "Crews Control." Time , September 22, 2014)
- " It must have been tough on your mother, not having any children ." (Ginger Rogers in 42nd Street , 1933)
- Too scared to buy before they sell, some homeowners aim for a trade.
- "So I just want to say this to the Congress: An America that buys much more than they sell year in and year out is an America that is facing economic and military disaster . (Congressman James A. Traficant, Congressional Record--House , September 25, 1998)
- "After she declared herself 'broken, betrayed, at bay, really low' in another organ yesterday, I'm not sure the Diary should even mention poor Bel Mooney 's name." ( The Guardian , August 9, 1994)
Creating Suspense With Cataphora
- "[Cataphora] is in evidence in the next example, which is typical of the opening sentences of books:
Students (not unlike yourselves) compelled to buy paperback copies of his novels--notably the first, Travel Light , though there has lately been some academic interest in his more surreal and 'existential' and perhaps even 'anarchist' second novel, Brother Pig --or encountering some essay from When the Saints in a shiny heavy anthology of mid-century literature costing $12.50, imagine that Henry Bech , like thousands less famous than he, is rich. He is not. [John Updike, "Rich in Russia." Bech: A Book , 1970]
Here we meet 'copies of his novels' before we know who 'he' is. It is only several lines later that the possessive adjective 'his' links forward to the proper nouns Henry Bech in the text that comes after. As you can see, whereas anaphora refers back, cataphora refers forward. Here, it is a stylistic choice, to keep the reader in suspense as to who is being talked about. More usually, the noun that the pronoun links forward to follows soon after." (Joan Cutting, Pragmatics and Discourse: A Resource Book for Students . Routledge, 2002) Strategic Use of Cataphora
- "[M]ore often than not, protypical cataphora is motivated by a planned or strategic delivery of a referent, such as in news-telling like the following: Listen to this--John won a lottery and got a million dollars! Prototypical cataphora thus is rarely associated with problems in lexical retrieval." (Makoto Hayashi and Kyung-Eun Yoon, "Demonstratives in Interaction." Fillers, Pauses and Placeholders , ed. by Nino Amiridze, Boyd H. Davis, and Margaret Maclagan. John Benjamins, 2010)
Cataphora and Style
- "[S]ome prescriptive grammarians have gone so far as to condemn the practice [of cataphora], for reasons of clarity and, more blandly, 'good style.' So H.W. Fowler declares 'the pronoun should rarely precede its principal,' a view echoed by Gowers . . .. This has led to problems in terminology. The term antecedent , for example, is commonly used to refer to a coreferential NP in an anaphoric relation; there is no equivalent expression for the *postcedent NP, however. But by an odd semantic license, some grammarians , and of different schools of thought, use antecedent in this sense." (Katie Wales, Personal Pronouns in Present-Day English . Cambridge University Press, 1996)
Etymology From the Greek, "backward" + "carry"

10 Best English Grammar Courses to Take in 2023
Write and speak better English with these free and paid online English grammar courses
English is one of the most popular languages today; no doubt many people want to learn and get better at it. A crucial part of any language is its grammar. But for some, it might be a daunting task. “How do they write so well while I struggle to get a sentence right?”
If you’re one of them, don’t worry. Grammar is not a mathematical formula. In fact, it’s simply the way a language has developed… just like your own language. So you actually know a lot of grammar already! And with so many online courses today, learning English grammar is a piece of cake.
In this guide, I’ve selected the 10 best free and paid English grammar online courses for you from the 750+ English grammar courses on our catalog by following a well-defined methodology that you can find below. My colleague, @Fabio , an ESL instructor, has helped me with the research.
But if you want to jump straight to the results, here are my top 10 picks. You can click on a course to jump to the corresponding section:
What is English Grammar?
Grammar is a set of conventions and rules that govern a language. This is true for any language. For English, this includes the structure of words, phrases, clauses, sentences, and whole texts.
Rule is the bare minimum of what it takes to make your language understandable by other people. On the other hand, convention is a generally accepted principle, which is context dependent.
There are many kinds of English, and their conventions may differ. But the basics (the rules ) are the same. In fact, we use different kinds of grammar throughout the day depending on the context.
Why are English Grammar Skills Important?
English is the most popular language today, spoken by a whopping 1.452 billion people worldwide , according to Ethnologue (2022, 25th edition) ! And any language needs its grammar.
Here are some of the many reasons why English (and so its grammar) skills are important:
- Academic purpose – the majority of scientific papers are published in English nowadays, being prevalent even in non-English speaking countries such as India, Germany, France, and Spain.
- English for traveling abroad – most tourist places in the world will have a pamphlet and a tourist guide who speaks English, also it’s really helpful with handling immigration, restaurants and hotels in general, and also communication with foreigners.
- English for connecting with people worldwide – the internet is in English and there is no denying that. If you want to connect with people from all over the world such as reddit communities or study groups such as Class Central Cohorts and bootcamps, you have to communicate well in English.
- English for business – English has become the standard language for doing business and for online learning. So, I can’t emphasize enough the importance of learning good grammar since my work involves writing articles in English with the help of an international team at Class Central.
What is My Experience with English Grammar?
I have been learning English grammar since my early school days. Even in college, I had to learn English grammar as part of my curriculum. Other than that, my habit of reading English fiction has polished my grammar.
Most important of all, I am a writer here at Class Central. To this day, I’m learning something new while writing my articles. My colleagues, @Pat and @Manoel (two awesome people), have helped me improve my writing at every step.
Besides that, I am a Guided Project Instructor and a Beta Tester at Coursera, having tested many courses before they’re officially launched. I have taken over 50 online courses in various subjects.
My experience as an online learner and teacher has given me some perspective on what to look for in an online course. I used my experience to evaluate each course in this list.
Course Ranking Methodology
I built this ranking following the now tried-and-tested methodology I used in previous rankings ( you can find them all here ). It involves a three-step process:
- Research: I started by leveraging Class Central’s database with 100K online courses and 200K+ reviews. Then, I made a preliminary selection of 750+ English grammar courses by rating, reviews, and bookmarks.
- Evaluate: I read through reviews on Class Central, Reddit, and course providers to understand what other learners thought about each course and combined it with my own experience as a learner .
- Select: Well-made courses were picked if they presented valuable and engaging content and they have to fit in a set of criteria and be ranked accordingly: comprehensive curriculum, release date, affordability, ratings and enrollments.
The end result is a unique selection of courses that combines a decade of Class Central data and my own experience as an online learner to try to get the best of both worlds. So far, I’ve spent more than 10 hours building this list, and I’ll continue to update it.
Course Ranking Statistics
Here are some statistics regarding this course ranking:
- Combined, these courses have accrued nearly 1M enrollments.
- 7 courses are free or free-to-audit and 3 courses are paid .
- The most-represented course provider in the ranking is Coursera , with 4 specializations and 1 course.
- All 10 courses and specializations are in English.
- Combined, these courses have been bookmarked nearly 15.7K times on Class Central, while the English grammar subject has been bookmarked over 300.3K times on Class Central, and accounts for over 750 courses in Class Central catalog.
So without further ado, let’s get to my picks for the best English grammar online courses.

You’ll also have the opportunity to review some basic structures such as “be” verbs, present simple questions, possessives, adverbs of frequency, demonstratives, articles, when to use “is” or “It’s” and how to answer with “Yes, I do” or “Yes, I have”.
More advanced topics will also be discussed such as adjective clauses + quantifiers, irregular plural nouns, adverb clauses, imperatives, modals, active and passive voice, and so on.
The course is broken down into 83 videos. Each module involves about 5 to 10 minutes of work. Concepts are taught through video lectures only. Full English transcripts for each video are provided in the YouTube descriptions, which is a great advantage for non-native learners.
