Abstract
Anaphora plays an indispensable role in discourse cohesion since it tells us how discourse is constructed and arranged. The present paper aims to analyze anaphora from a semantic angle. In this paper, definition and types of anaphora are presented firstly, and then moves to focus on nominal anaphora. Through analyzing these English nominal anaphoric phenomenons, semantic relations between anaphoric elements and their antecedents such as synonymy, hyponymy and meronymy are found out between these sentences. Finally, some enlightenment with regard to English teaching and learning are provided.
