Examples of "coindexing"
Based on Reinhart's theory, the pronouns in group (20) can all be coindexed within their respective sentences. In contrast, the pronouns in group (21) are unable to be coindexed because none of the sentences meets the
(21a) does not meet the
condition of (19b) because the condition does not allow non-R-pronouns to be coindexed within their MGC. (21b, d, and e) are unable to be coindexed because the pronouns are not c-commanded by the potential antecedent. (21c)'s R-pronouns cannot be coindexed with NPs outside their MGC. Thus, the pronouns in the sentences in group (21) are uninterpretable as bound variables.
In the sentence above, the possessive pronoun "her" is a free variable. It may refer to the previously mentioned "Lisa" or to any other female. In other words, "her book" could be referring to Lisa's book (an instance of coreference) or to a book that belongs to a different female (e.g. Jane's book). Whoever the referent of "her" is can be established according to the situational (i.e. pragmatic) context. The identity of the referent can be shown using
subscripts where "i" indicates one referent and "j" indicates a second referent (different from "i"). Thus, the sentence "Lisa found her book" has the following interpretations:
stage, each noun phrase is given a unique index, called a "referential index". In the contraindexing stage, each non- noun phrase (i.e. each noun phrase that is not a reflexive pronoun like "herself" or a reciprocal pronoun like "each other") is given a set of "anaphoric indices". This set consists of the referential indices of all elements that c-command it. This set of anaphoric indices is used to determine whether coreference can occur between two noun phrases. In order for coreference to occur, neither noun phrase can contain the other's referential index in its set of anaphoric indices. For example, in sentence (5):
