Binding and Discourse: Where Syntax and Pragmatics Meet by Lilia Schurcks

This book provides an analysis of binding phenomena in Bulgarian with a strong emphasis on pragmatic issues. In the ‘morphology after syntax’ approach it is assumed that the morphosyntactic objects are spelled out in an increasing order of markedness: the most specific structural description is the first to be spelled out and the least specific one is the last. It is further investigated that the use of overlapping forms in the local domain results from discourse factors.
