Irreplaceable Pronominals

Irreplaceable Pronominals

(p.201) 16 Irreplaceable Pronominals

Chris Collins

The MIT Press

An imposter or camouflage determiner phrase having the same ultimate antecedent may replace the grammatical instance of a pronominal without loss of grammaticality. Many pronominals cannot be replaced in this way, however. In general, imposters other than number 1 cannot occur in positions where a reflexive pronoun is expected. This chapter focuses on irreplaceable pronominals and discusses reflexives, inherently reflexive verbs, and resumptive pronouns.

Keywords:   determiner phrase, pronominals, imposters, reflexives, reflexive verbs, resumptive pronouns
