Abstract:


This is a study of the syntactic behaviour of personal
pronoun subjects and the indefinite pronoun man in Old
English, focusing on differences in word order as compared
to full noun phrases. In generative work on Old English,
noun phrases are usually divided into two categories:
'nominal' and 'pronominal'. The latter category has
typically been restricted to personal pronouns, but despite
striking similarities to the behaviour of nominals there
were good reasons to believe that man should be grouped
with personal pronouns. A full investigation was done with
the aid of the Toronto Corpus, which confirmed this
hypothesis. This in turn has consequences for the analysis
of personal pronouns.
