Comments on Erteschik-Shir’s article

From the journal


The article to my mind rightly emphasizes the importance of prosodic and discourse-dynamic factors. Applied to the Norwegian phenomena, these factors may be rendered as:


a. A pronoun is incorporated in a prosodic domain P only if its referent is included in the discourse-dynamic domain GIVEN relative to the proposition being expressed.

b. Adverbial elements that can occur right-adjacent to a category C, can also occur right-adjacent to the cluster C+pron+ when this cluster is a prosodic domain.
