[2] To be clear, reminding phoricity is Martin's rebranding of Halliday & Hasan's (1976) personal and demonstrative (co-)reference, misunderstood and relocated from non-structural lexicogrammar to structural discourse semantics.  The actual domains in which these items appear are given by Halliday & Matthiessen (2014: 628, 629) as follows:





[3] To be clear, relevance phoricity is Martin's rebranding of Halliday & Hasan's (1976) comparative reference, misunderstood and relocated from non-structural lexicogrammar to structural discourse semantics.  The actual domains in which these items appear are given by Halliday & Matthiessen (2014: 633) as follows:



[4] To be clear, redundancy phoricity is Martin's rebranding of Halliday & Hasan's (1976) ellipsis–&–substitution, misunderstood as a type of reference, and relocated from non-structural lexicogrammar to structural discourse semantics.  The actual domains in which these operations can take place are given by Halliday & Matthiessen (2014: 633) as follows:
