On the semantics and syntax of Scandinavian pronouns and object shift

Josefsson, Gunlög LU (1999) In Clitics in the Languages of Europe p.731-757
Abstract
In this article I argue that weak pronouns in the Scandinvian languages should be analysed as functional heads expressing pure phi-features, and that these heads occur either without complements or copying phi-features expressed in the rest of the extended projection. The description is modelled on a construction in Old and Modern Icelandic, where a pronoun may identify the phi-features of a deleted or empty phrase in a particular way. This construction is compared to a similar construction in Modern Swedish.
