- This paper is concerned with anti-local, long-distance anaphora,
particularly in psych-predicate contexts. We will examine how the
phenomenon is related to logophoricity and de se on one hand and to
thematic hierarchy and Topic candidacy hierarchy on the other.
The binding theory developed in Chomsky (1981) does not account for
the non-clause-bounded reflexives that occur in various languages such as
Korean, Japanese, Chinese, Icelandic, Norwegian, Finnish, Polish, Latin,
Italian, etc. in terms of purely structural conditions A and B of the theory.
We will consider if the phenomenon can be explained in terms of semantic,
cognitive and discourse factors such as topicality. However, we will try to
see how such factors tend to be related to structural conditions at the same
time. We further investigate the possibility of applying the notion of
ranking of the relevant constraints in Optimality Theory.
