This book presents two case studies (one on overt third-person pronouns in Japanese and one on names in English) that are aimed at shedding light on the nature and role of antilogophoricity in natural language anaphora. The results of these case studies provide important insights into the way in which Binding Conditions and antilogophoricity restrictions work in tandem to bring about disjoint-reference effects.
