In this paper we develop an analysis of reflexive binding involving the reflexive zibun in Japanese. We argue that the reflexive zibun is bound in a minimal domain defined by the POV (point of view) feature, which entails that zibun requires local...

In this paper we develop an analysis of reflexive binding involving the reflexive zibun in Japanese. We argue that the reflexive zibun is bound in a minimal domainde fined by the POV (point of view) feature, motivated by such semantic or pragmatic...

Theoretical and applied linguistics at Kobe Shoin : トークス   6 65-85   Mar 2003
In this paper, we claim that existential implication based on existential closure (Heim (1982)) plays a crucial role in the syntax and semantics of constructions involving head-internal relative clauses (HIRC). By adopting Diesing (1992) Mapping H...

Theoretical and applied linguistics at Kobe Shoin : トークス   5 83-106   Mar 2002
This paper discusses an elliptical process called Sluicing in Japanese and English, and its theoretical consequences for syntax and logical structure. Assuming the analytical framework of Chung, Ladusaw and McCloskey (1995) (CLM) with some adaptat...

This note discusses the cases of what has been termed Sluicing in the literature involving complex NPs containing a wh-phrase, or an indefinite NP which purports to serve as the inner antecedent for the wh-phrase left behind in a sluiced clause. T...

The purpose of this short note is to present some phenomena which suggest the existence of a functional category which is motivated by point of view (POV) of discourse-participants, most notably the speaker/addressee, and topic of the discourse. T...
