We present a ‘superlinguistic’ analysis of hyperlinks, building on parallels with co-speech pointing gestures. We show that one is able to give acceptability judgments for hyperlink placement and use, allowing us to define a precise syntax and semantics of hyperlinks. We show that these patterns interact with core linguistic systems, including constituent structure, semantic type, veridicality, and information structure.
