PRONOUN Sample Clauses

PRONOUN. The parties agree, where the masculine pronoun appears in this Agreement or any Letters of Understanding forming part of this Agreement, it shall be construed as including the feminine pronoun.
PRONOUN. SG.MASC already probablyhour stands. Yes. It’s probably been standing for an hour.’ (Zemskaja and Kapanadze 1978: 242) Here the participle, like an adjective, distinguishes number (two values) and gender (three values: masculine, feminine and neuter, but only in the singular). The anaphoric pronoun does the same. It is not always the case, cross-linguistically, but it is extremely common that the anaphoric pronoun has the same feature possibilities as other agreement targets. If agreement is split into two different domains, then there are two distinct phenomena which for no principled reason utilize identical features. While the first argument is based on the most basic and systematic working of agreement, the second comes from a different perspective, namely that phenomena which arise when a system appears to break down can tell us more about the system than the normal instances. We look therefore at instances where instead of there being a single set of feature specifications allowed by the agreement system, we find more than one in conflict; that is, we find competition between syntactic agreement, that is, agreement according to form, and semantic agreement, agreement according to meaning.5 (We first lay out the problem, raised in Corbett 1979 and following publications, and then return to Barlow’s discussion of the issues.) Relevant examples include the following:
