This chapter makes use of Pesetsky and Torrego's feature chains to account for the distribution of reflexive and personal pronouns. Under the assumption that all unvalued features probe when merged, it is possible to form chains between reflexives and their antecedents. In line with Reuland (2001), the assumption is that these chains force the reflexives to be interpreted as bound variables at LF.

Keywords:   reflexives, phrasal probes, feature valuation, Pesetsky and Torrego, Reuland
