Condition C violations in Thai and St’át’imcets
This paper aims to look at the relationship between different types of noun phrases in sentence structure. It focuses on Binding Theory, specifically, by outlining apparent Condition C violations found in both Thai and St’át’imcets. It presents examples of the apparent violations and consolidates restrictions found in previous literature on when these violations can occur. The violations in the two languages are compared and Dechaine and Wiltscko’s (2002) pro-PhiP theory is used to account for both violations. Through applying this theory to the St’át’imcets violations, numerous issues are found and presented.
Keywords: Syntax; Binding Theory; Condition C; pro-PhiP
