ABSTRACT

This chapter revisits the problems raised by donkey-sentences without resorting to an analysis in terms of scope. We show the limits of the quantificational approach on the one hand and of DRT analyses on the other hand. These accounts are problematic because they treat indefinite DPs on a par with quantified expressions. Pursuing the line of analysis developed in Chap. 6, we show that by implementing dependency relations in functional terms and by treating both indefinite DPs and pronouns occurring in donkey-sentences as functional terms, we can solve the proportion problem, we can account for the whole range of available readings of donkey-sentences (symmetric/asymmetric, weak/strong) and we can predict when and why an indefinite DP can or cannot serve as the antecedent of an anaphoric pronoun.
