Abstract:

Safir's monograph develops a theory about the role of anaphora in the
formulation of general syntax. He presents the following proposals:
firstly, that the complementary distribution of forms that support
anaphoric readings is not accidental; secondly, that dependent
identity relations are always possible where they are not prohibited
by a constraint; and lastly, that there are no parameters for anaphora
- that all anaphora-specific principles are universal, and that the
patterns of anaphora across languages arise entirely from lexical
properties. The goal of this thoroughly comprehensive look at the
phenomenon of anaphora is to fundamentally redirect current thinking
on the subject.
