Example text

In his classification, Benveniste sets 3rd person pronominals apart from 1st and 2nd person ones. He claims that 3rd person pronominals have ‘no person’. A development of Benveniste's analysis is offered by Bonet (1991). The distribution of clitics in Barceloni Catalan shows how reflexives pattern with 1st and 2nd clitics, and are distinct from 3rd person clitics. Along the same lines, Kayne (2000) provides a detailed classification of clitics in Romance, showing how reflexive si patterns with 1st and 2nd clitics for several reasons: morphological inflection, syntactic interaction with other elements in the clause and distribution.

Moreover, section 2 elaborates on the behavior of transitive ISCs in the present tense. The Aktionsart of ISCs with and without V-O agreement will be considered, and these two constructions will be shown to be instantiations of accomplishments (ISCs with V-O agreement) and activities (ISCs without V-O agreement). Cross-linguistic evidence will also be provided. The interpretation of impersonal si will be shown to depend strictly on both the syntactic assessment of the clause in which it appears (sentential aspect) and the VP describing the event (inner aspect).

We wish to propose that the traditional -set is not sufficient to account for cases like (36)-(37). Syntactic agreement is more complex than the simple application of Agree, and involves a larger number of features. This means that additional features might be needed (see D’Alessandro 2004a, to appear d,e for a different approach to semantic agreement). We will discuss these issues at length in the final chapter, where past participle agreement in ISCs is examined. For the moment, we will concentrate on the syntactic -set that characterizes impersonal si.
