Abstract:
			
The following title in the field of Generative Studies is now
available from John Benjamins Publishing:Pronouns, Clitics and
Empty Nouns: `Pronominality' and licensing in syntax by Phoevos
Panagiotidis, University of London

Two issues little discussed in the generative literature are the
internal structure of pronouns and what it is in Syntax that triggers
pronominal reference. This monograph treats these two topics in detail
and investigates whether pronominal (strong, weak and clitic pronouns)
and related elliptical expressions can be given a unified syntactic
representation. The answer, derived from a wealth of cross-linguistic
evidence, is largely affirmative: pronominals include a semantically
empty noun as part of their internal structure. The case of null
subjects in "pro-drop" languages is also examined and it
is argued that they are not empty pronominal categories but, rather,
the reflex of a "verbal determiner". Finally, using
the internal structure of pronouns as a sort of "litmus
paper", the book explores the relationship between functional
and lexical heads as well as the notions of selection and licensing in
syntax, and offers new insights into the categorial status of
functional categories.
