Title: Resumptive Pronouns at the Interfaces
Edited By: Alain Rouveret
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/lfab.5
Series Title: Language Faculty and Beyond 5
Description:

This book brings together contributions which address a wide range of issues
regarding resumption, gathering evidence from a great variety of languages
including Welsh, Breton, Irish, Scottish Gaelic, French, Vata, Hebrew, Jordanian
and Palestinian Arabic. The topics covered include the interpretive properties of
resumptive pronouns and epithets, the featural make-up of resumptive
pronouns, as well as the syntactic diversity of resumptive constructions and the
nature of A-resumption. The introduction offers a critical survey of early
syntactic accounts and recent semantic advancements. One contribution
presents the results of experimental research providing a new perspective on
the last resort status of resumption. Two seminal papers on resumption, Doron
(1982) and McCloskey (1990), have also been included. This volume, which
deals with a phenomenon that has given rise to intriguing claims concerning the
structure and interpretation of pronouns, will be of great interest to both
semanticists and syntacticians, whichever framework they favor.
