Book Information


Title: Dissolving Binding Theory
Written By: Johan E.C.V. Rooryck
Guido J. vanden Wyngaerd
Series Title: Oxford Studies in Theoretical Linguistics

This book examines the distribution and interpretation of anaphors and
pronouns. Through a detailed analysis of simplex and complex anaphors in
Dutch and English, as well as other Romance and Germanic languages, the
authors show that the relationship between an anaphor and its antecedent
can be captured in terms of general Minimalist principles.
