This chapter examines homogeneity, a property of collections of pronominal occurrences related by antecedence. To illustrate homogeneity, it considers a sentence with two separate pronominals, each with the same imposter as an antecedent (although the two may not have the same immediate antecedent). It shows that there are cases where a plural imposter can antecede either third or first person pronominals, and that pronominal occurrences with the same ultimate antecedent are homogeneous. It also offers a revised version of the homogeneity principle and illustrates how extraction of a constituent containing a pronominal gives rise to grammaticality judgments that differ from those of the unextracted versions. Finally, the chapter considers antecedence versus coindexing of determiner phrases.
