Binding Theory explores how different kinds of nominal expressions such as names, noun phrases and pronouns come to have anaphoric relations amongst one another, and how they come to have reference to things in the world. This textbook provides a thorough and comprehensive introduction to modern binding theory, introducing a huge variety of nominal and especially pronominal expressions from the world's languages. Written in a clear and accessible style, and with numerous exercises and examples, this textbook will be invaluable to graduate and advanced undergraduate students of syntax and semantics.
