Condition C Applies Everywhere

Condition C Applies Everywhere

(p.23) Chapter 4 Condition C Applies Everywhere
Where Does Binding Theory Apply?

Samuel Jay Keyser

The MIT Press

This chapter demonstrates that Condition C applies everywhere. The arguments for A-reconstruction serve as a lemma leading up to the proof of the universal application of Condition C. The fact that Condition C applies everywhere is an important result, because it suggests a particular architecture: one where the negative conditions apply homogeneously throughout the derivation. Three types of examples show that Condition C applies everywhere: first, strong instances of Condition C violations; second, weak instances of Condition C violations; and third, instances of anaphor binding that show a difference depending on whether the anaphor is embedded or not.

Keywords:   A-reconstruction, Condition C, negative conditions
