Sample text

It was HIMSELF that I am sure was praised by Jerome. b. [It was HIMSELF that I am sure HIMSELF was praised by Jerome]. For in (iib), the highlighted form is an unbound reflexive in an argument position, which would be wrongly barred unconditionally even by the hypothetical revision of Principle A. Chapter 1. Inverse reflexives One must then search for a different principle to account for (57c, d) and (58c, d) and to provide a reconstruction of the circumstances under which extractions actually salvage ungrammatical simple reflexives.

B. Herself and ONLY herself seemed to Stella to be wise. (35) a. *Herself was really interesting to Stella. b. Herself and only herself was really interesting to Stella. Viewed in isolation, the division between strong and weak antireflexive contexts might not be of much significance. But it takes on importance because of two kinds of parallels between English weak antireflexive environments and other facts. The first involves a partial connection between the English [A and ONLY B] data and that documented for reflexives in French, Albanian and Greek.

So far, we have cited only one sort of unsalvageable reflexive, subjects of an active clause anteceded by some other phrase of the clause, and two sorts of salvageable reflexives, subjects of passive clauses and objects anteceded by following phrases.
