Meeting Description:

Pronouns can vary along two dimensions: (i) their interpretation (e.g., free vs. syntactically bound vs. donkey pronouns) and (ii) their form (e.g., personal vs. clitic vs. null vs. demonstrative pronouns). The goal of this workshop is to bring together recent advances bearing exactly on the interplay of the two, e.g. how do choices along one dimension restrict the possible choices along the other one?
