Abstract

This paper tests the Position of Antecedent Hypothesis (PAH), formulated by Carminati (2002), in Greek, in ambiguous contexts involving two possible antecedents of the same gender. PAH states that the null pronoun prefers an antecedent in the [Spec, IP] position, while the overt pronoun prefers an antecedent in object position. Structural configuration will guide the processor in choosing the proper antecedent for a pronoun. I prove that the PAH holds for agrammatic patients with Broca’s aphasia for intrasentential anaphora· yet the PAH does not foresee aphasic interpretation of Greek pronouns in multi-sentential cases.
