Wiki Version:
This paper experimentally tested the two competing theories on the distribution and referential properties of reflexives - the pure structural theory (e.g., Pica, 1987; Cole et al., 1990) and the logophoricity theory (e.g.,Sells, 1987;Charnavel & Sportiche, 2016) - via investigating the binding conditions of Chinese reflexive *ziji* and *taziji* using acceptability judgment tasks. The results about *ziji* support the logophoricity theory against the pure structural theory. Furthermore, our results reveal that *taziji*, though usually considered as a local anaphor (e.g., Cole, Hermon & Huang, 2006), can in fact similarly be exempt from binding under logophoric conditions.
