Sample text

One possibility is that they do not. Thus, Griswold is a cook would be represented as in (80): (80) Griswold 1 is [a cookh This representation has the advantage that it satisfies Principle C; but upon closer reflection, this does not appear to be the right way to look at the problem. We assume that the predicate a cook refers to a concept and that Griswold refers to the object Griswold. And we assume that noncoinde xing indicates not-coreference in the sense described above. But objects fall under concepts and are different in kind; a concept is the reference of a predicate, something that an object cannot be.

For some recent discussion of plural reference, see Link 1983, 1987, Roberts 1987, Landman 1989, Heim, Lasnik, and May 1991b, Schein 1994. Chapter 1 40 (116) Johnl talked to MarY2 about them l (fl2 This structure is consistent with Binding Theory, since the pronoun is free in its governing category; it is not c-commanded by another NP bearing an occurrence of that index. Coreference follows here, however, because although not bound by either NP, the pronoun is coindexedwith them, by the definition in (113).

Not only is Principle C inapplicable, but our language of arithmetic also lacks reflexives and pronouns, although we might construct an arithmetic that contained those elements. For instance, we could translate (56) as either (57a) or (57b): (56) 3 + I = 2 x 2 (57) a. Three plus one equals two times two b. Three plus one equals two times itself This freedom from A-binding in arithmetic that English may preserve is suggestive. It appears that we may adopt a way of speaking in which the referent of a name is fixed irrespective of the structure in which it appears.
