Abstract

This paper is concerned with the function of the SI&#280; particle in the impersonal construction and with the internal structure of impersonal pronouns in Polish. It is proposed that SI&#280; is a functional element heading its own projection, dubbed SI&#280;P, taking <i>pro</i> as its complement. This makes the SI&#280;P similar to canonical DPs. As for pronouns, it is argued that they enter the derivation as bundles of features that get bound by operators and logophoric categories in the course of the syntactic derivation. Differences in the interpretation of the null impersonal subject pronoun will depend on the kind of elements its sub-features will be bound by.
