SYNTAX: theory on A-binding. Binding theory consists of the three conditions in (i).
(i) A An anaphor is bound in its binding domain B A pronominal is free in its binding domain C An R-expression is freeUsually these conditions are conjoined with a characterization of anaphors, pronominals and R-expressions in terms of the features 'anaphor' and 'pronominal' as in (ii).
(ii) a [+anaphor, -pronominal] = anaphor b [+anaphor, +pronominal] = PRO c [-anaphor, -pronominal] = R-expression d [-anaphor, +pronominal] = pronominal
