Specific topics to be covered include (in roughly the order of discussion):
3.30 anaphora, ellipsis and "the architecture of the language faculty"
Configurational constraints on anaphoric relations
4.1 Linear order, heirarchical structure, and the "command" relation [Langacker 1969]
4.6 Disjoint reference and the "kommand" relation [Lasnik 1976]
4.8 "C-command" at last! [Reinhart 1981]
Binding Theory and syntactic indexing (part 1)
4.13 The Knowledge of Language binding theory [Chomsky 1986]
4.15 Coindexing = coreference [Fiengo & May 1994 ch. 1]
Binding Theory and syntactic indexing (part 2)
4.20 Coindexing = binding; coreference = pragmatics [Reinhart 1983; Reinhart 1997, Heim 1992]
4.22 The "Reflexivity" binding theory [Reinhart & Reuland]
4.27 Reflexivity cont'd [R&R; Grodzinsky and Reinhart 1993]
A typology of anaphora
4.29 Deep and surface anaphora [Hankamer & Sag 1976; Sag and Hankamer 1984]

5.6 Argument-contained ellipsis [tbd]
Ellipsis and Logical Form
5.11 Logical Form and logical form [May 1991; McCawley 1968]
5.13 Antecedent-contained deletion and LF [Kennedy 1997a; Hornstein 1994]
5.18 Sluicing [Chung, Ladusaw, and McCloskey 1995]
Reconstruction effects, Binding Theory, Logical Form
5.20 Anti-reconstruction effects [Lebeaux 1991; Heycock 1995]
