The Role of Pragmatics in Reflexive Interpretation by Turkish Learners of English.
Demirci, Mahide
Second Language Research, v16 n4 p325-53 Oct 2000
Investigates the effects of pragmatic principles on the acquisition of the binding of English reflexives by adult Turkish second language (L2) learners. Compares pragmatically-biased and pragmatically-neutral sentences to determine whether pragmatic bias towards a non-local antecedent overrides the parameter setting of English and causes learners to choose as possible antecedents noun phrases outside the binding domain.
