The feature geometry of generic inclusive null DPs in Hungarian
This paper claims that Hungarian allows generic inclusive subjects to be null only if they have a generic inclusive antecedent in an adjacent clause. This distinguishes Hungarian from all the other types of Null Subject Languages (NSLs) identified by Roberts & Holmberg (2010). The generic inclusive lexical <i>az ember</i> GEN ‘the man’ is a first person-oriented genericity-inducing lexical item that always receives widest scope interpretation, just like English <i>one.</i> The generic inclusive null subject, <i>pro</i> GEN, on the other hand, is an anaphor that requires a generic inclusive antecedent, as does English <i>oneself</i> (Moltmann 2006, 2010, 2012). A similar duality is observed with PRO, the silent counterpart of generic inclusive <i>one</i> in non-finite clauses.
