- In Section 1, we examine the two competing theories of bindig, i.e., Chomsky's (1981) and Bouchard's (1984). Sections 2 and 3 will demonstrate that the so-called "subject-antecedent condition" on anaphor binding in Korean cannot be maintained. Some conceivable solutions to the problem are attempted in Section 4. Both Bouchard's and Chomsky's frameworks will be tested in order to find a plausible solution. It is suggested that, even though Chomsky's framework seems to fit the Korean case better than Bouchard's as far as our assumptions in this study are concerned, the binding theory of Chomsky (1981) be parametrized across languages. It seems that the empirical coverage of our proposal is much broader than that of previous analyses. In Section 5, the major results emerging from the present study are summarized.
