Abstract

Evidence is provided for a minimalist account of English-type resumptive pronouns. According to this account, resumptive pronouns are spell-outs of traces. For reasons of economy, the resumptive pronoun surfaces only when the derivation with the trace is precluded by syntactic principles. The results bore out the prediction.
