SYNTAX: disjoint reference is what obtains if two elements refer to different entities. EXAMPLE: in (i)a the reference of she and her is disjoint, and in (i)b that of she and them.
(i) a She likes her b She likes themThe case of (i)a is captured by the binding theory: since her is a pronominal it must obey condition B which says that she may not locally bind her. It is assumed that she and her must have disjoint reference as a consequence.
