Backward versus Forward Anaphora: Reconstruction in Child Grammar.
Guasti, Maria Teresa; Chierchia, Gennaro
Language Acquisition, v8 n2 p129-70 1999-2000
Examines whether certain reconstruction effects are present in child language. Points out an unexpected restriction on forward anaphora that is argued to be a case in which Principle C of the Binding Theory (Chomsky, 1981; 1986) operates at the reconstructed level. Results suggest that the ability to judge instances of forward anaphora and of backward anaphora manifest themselves simultaneously. (Author/VWL)
