Abstract

This contribution starts with an overview of current issues in the theory of binding. It sketches a modular approach based on universal principles (entailing that reflexivity must be licensed), and that yet is able to account for the cross-linguistic variation observed. It subsequently addresses three issues as case studies: Non-local binding in Scandinavian and the role played by finiteness marking; followed by an analysis of apparently locally bound pronominals in Fijian; it concludes with a novel solution to a problem posed by the anaphoric system of Chamorro that was first described in Chung (1989).
