Title: Pronouns and Word Order in Old English, with Particular Reference to the Indefinite Pronoun Man
Written By: Linda van Bergen
Series Title: Outstanding Dissertations in Linguistics
Description:

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.
