model of Categorial Grammar that arose out of the paintings of Lambek, 1958 and Lambek, 1961. There Ca- gorial varieties are analyzed as formulae of a logical calculus. specifically, the Categorial slashes are interpreted as forms

lexical meanings for anaphoric expressions, however the locality challenge isn't effortless to resolve in a simply lexical way.
