NP Versus DP Reflexives: Evidence from Malagasy

From: Oceanic Linguistics
Volume 43, Number 1, June 2004
pp. 32-48 | 10.1353/ol.2004.0015


This article examines the Malagasy anaphor tena 'body. It is shown that this anaphor is a bare noun (NP) and therefore has a highly restricted distribution. Tena is then contrasted with another anaphor-like element, ny tenany 'her/his body'. It is argued that ny tenany is not an anaphor, per se, but a complex nominal (DP) with a possessive pronoun that need not be bound.
