The contributions of this thematic collection center around the
typology of pronominal paradigms, the generation of syntactic and
semantic representations for constructions containing pronouns, and
the neurological underpinnings for linguistic distinctions that are
relevant for the production and interpretation of these
constructions. They come from different theoretical approaches and
methodological backgrounds and take into account data from a wide
range of Indoeuropean and non-Indoeuropean languages. Bringing
together a cross-section of recent research on the grammar and
representation of pronouns, the volume offers a kaleidoscope of
studies united by the common topic of pronouns as a domain of language
that exemplarily shows the interaction of different components
responsible for computational (syntactic and semantic), lexical, and
discourse-pragmatic processes.
