How to use reference in a sentence?
Given that our editorial guidelines that reference pigs and pork have been in place for as long as I can remember, little did I imagine that they would attract international headlines claiming that Oxford University Press had banned sausages, to clarify, OUP does not have a blanket ban on pork products in its titles, and we do still publish books about pigs.
Being judgemental is neither good nor correct. When we judge others only from our frame of reference, we invariably fail to understand all other frames of reference that may lead to totally different perspectives. Being judgemental is a sign of arrogance, disrespect and ignorance IMHO.

Always live, and let live all others around you. Cheers!
The reference here was that this was just an intensely focused, bright guy who knew his stuff.
