This work focuses on the comprehension of null and overt subject pronouns in intrasentential anaphora contexts in Basque, a language which employs overt referential devices that fall out of the scope of what traditionally counts as third person pronouns, namely the demonstrative hura 'that' and the quasipronoun bera '(s)he (him/herself)'. Data from native adults obtained from two experimental off-line tasks on the referential properties and the discourse features of null and overt pronouns set a baseline for comparison with a) the insights reported in descriptive grammars and with b) developmental data from 6-8-year-old child L1 and child L2.

Linguistic Field(s): Discourse Analysis
                            Language Acquisition

Subject Language(s): Basque (eus)

Written In: English (eng)
