In this paper,the anaphoric usage of the Japanese determiners kono and sono are investigated. Their usages can be categorized as siteisizi (designated usage) or daikousizi (representative usage). In siteisizi, kono functions as a denotational determiner and sono as a connotational one. This paper also shows that siteisizi is a textual phenomenon while daikousizi is a syntactic one. These differences can be explained by applying Halliday & Hasan's concepts of "reference" and "substitution" . The findings of this paper also illustrate that Leech's "Grammar" can be considered at super-sentential levels.
