Imposters can antecede either third person or non-third person pronominals. For lexical determiner phrases (DPs), the values are inherent and independent of matching the feature values of other DPs. For non-expletive pronominal DPs, however, the values are often determined by agreement with their immediate antecedents or secondary sources. This chapter examines the Principle C phenomena and the superiority of antecedence over coindexing.

Keywords:   imposters, pronominals, pronominal agreement, determiner phrases, antecedents, secondary sources, Principle C, antecedence, coindexing
