This chapter focuses on the coordination between two or more determiner phrases (DPs) with different person values and considers the basic law governing the assignment of person values in conjunctive coordination. It also demonstrates how to account for the facts of person assignment in coordinate structures with imposter and camouflage conjuncts. Before considering how the person values of coordinate structures involving imposters and camouflage DPs are determined, the chapter considers the more basic case of coordinate structures involving ordinary, non-imposter/non-camouflage DPs. It then discusses secondary sources in coordinate person assignment, a modified account of key conjunct, and illegal person value assignment. It also presents examples of a coordinate structure having as a conjunct a third person pronoun anteceded by an imposter or a camouflage DP, describes an unusual constraint on pronominal fusion that arises when one of the antecedents is an imposter or a camouflage DP, and analyzes the distinction between inclusive and exclusive first person plurals.
