Title: Long object shift and reflexives
Author: Fredrik Heinat

Institution: Linnaeus University
Linguistic Field: Morphology; Semantics; Syntax
Subject Language: Swedish
Abstract: This short communication is concerned with long object shift of reflexives in Swedish. Only 3rd person reflexives can shift across their antecedent. For some reason this is possible even if the antecedent is 1st or 2nd person as well, but certain requirements on the antecedent are necessary. This paper shows that neither a purely syntactic nor a purely semantic analysis can account for all the facts. Instead the best analysis seems to be one that makes use of Bonet's (1995) post-syntactic morphological processes: feature delinking, feature erasure and feature insertion.
