Edited By Anita Auer, Daniel Schreier, and Richard J. Watts

Abstract: Meta-information concerns the way information is ordered: to achieve the ordering of non-linear representations as texts (sequences of linguistic utterances), the speaker must select a centre of attention (henceforth CA) and "predicate" about it. Hence, in our centering theory, the term "predicate" is reserved for the meta-informative level and is used in its initial Aristotelian sense.
