Abstract

I argue that cases of personal pronouns that appear to be interpretable as universal impersonals only in the presence of a (typically locative) adverbial phrase are in fact not impersonal pronouns at all. These &#8220;universal impersonal cum adverbial&#8221; constructions involve an ordinary anaphoric personal pronoun whose antecedent is a silent people hidden in the locative.
