Intervensjon i norsk langdistansebinding

Abstract (Swedish)
In the normal case, a reflexive pronoun is bound within its containing clause. More exceptionally, a reflexive is instead related to a binder in a higher clause – a phenomenon known as long distance binding. Long distance binding can be found in Norwegian, but as I will show here, with considerable variation between speakers. Quite a few speakers accept long distance binding only across indefinite interveners. For those who accept long distance binding across definite interveners, the acceptability drops if the embedded clause has V2 order, and in particular if the initial constituent of the embedded clause is topicalised. Other factors that influence the acceptability of long distance binding are the logophoricity of the matrix verb, the... (More)

Some speakers reject long distance binding only when two ore more negative factors co-occur. This shows that long distance binding is a complex phenomenon, and that individual grammars can give priority to different factors (Less)
