Message 3: query about English interrogatives

Subject: query about English interrogatives

I would appreciate any references that discuss the relationship
or correspondence between the syntactic form and the pragmatic
(or social) function of interrogatives in English. Much of the
work that I am familiar with claims that any form can be used for
any function. My own research suggests otherwise. Please send
replies directly to:

Message 4: Query on Spanish and Binding

Date: 5 May 92 13:17:00 EST
From: "STEVE SEEGMILLER" <SEEGMILLERapollo.montclair.edu>
Subject: Query on Spanish and Binding

This is a request for help, in the form of references, suggestions, etc.,
on a syntactic problem (or maybe only an apparent problem). I have
recently stumbled upon some interesting Spanish data which seem to violate
Binding Principles. In particular, my informants have provided examples like

 Juan hablo a Pedro de/sobre el

and insist that el can can have as its antecedent at least Juan, and
perhaps also Pedro. If the facts are what they seem, Binding Principle 2
is clearly violated, since we have a pronoun which is not free in the local
domain. There are also cases, although not so clear, in which an anaphor
seems not to be bound in the local domain.

Any thoughts on such examples will be greatly appreciated. If there is
interest, I will post a summary of responses received.

Thanks.
