The paper focuses on the similarities and differences between English and Bulgarian journalistic texts with respect to co-reference realization. The hypothesis tested views the choice of the various means of securing the co-reference mechanism as depending primarily on sociolinguistic and psycholinguistic rather than systemic factors. Employing the contrastive analysis perspective, the whole variety of linguistic expressions referring to the same extralinguistic object are considered and discussed in detail.
