Đoàn, Quý Ngọc Thị, Martin B.H. Everaert and Eric J. Reuland 2019 Chapter 8. (In)definiteness of Vietnamese noun phrasesInterdisciplinary Perspectives on Vietnamese Linguistics, Duffield, Nigel, Trang Phan and Tue Trinh (eds.), pp. 155–180
In this contribution we discuss the factors determining the definite or indefinite interpretation of Noun Phrases in Vietnamese. In contrast to what has been claimed in the literature, we find that NPs consisting of a bare noun and NPs consisting of a numeral, a classifier (cl) and a noun, while… read more | Chapter
This contribution starts with an overview of current issues in the theory of binding. It sketches a modular approach based on universal principles (entailing that reflexivity must be licensed), and that yet is able to account for the cross-linguistic variation observed. It subsequently addresses… read more | Article
Marelj, Marijana and Eric J. Reuland 2013 Clitic SE in Romance and Slavonic revisitedCurrent Studies in Slavic Linguistics, Kor Chahine, Irina (ed.), pp. 75–88
In Slavonic and Romance languages there is a range of constructions that feature what is referred to as the “the reflexive clitic” se/si/się. Adhering to the law of parsimony, we propose a unified analysis of the clitic across different reflexive-like and passive-like constructions. We put forth… read more | Article

De Mulder, Øystein Nilsen and Arjen Zondervan (eds.), pp. 257–282
In this article I start out from Kratzer’s (2006) observation that a bound variable interpretation of German 1st and 2nd person (possessive) pronouns shows locality effects. I show how the approach based on syntactic chain formation developed in Reuland (2001, 2005a) resolves a general empirical… read more | Article
Reuland, Eric J. 2007 Perspectives on BindingLinguistic Theory and South Asian Languages: Essays in honour of K. A. Jayaseelan, Bayer, Josef, Tanmoy Bhattacharya and M.T. Hany Babu (eds.), pp. 127–142
In this article I address the question as to why natural language has special principles governing the binding of pronouns and anaphors and the licensing of reflexive predicates. That is, why do we have principles such as conditions A, and B of the binding theory? Based on facts from Malayalam… read more | Article
