For each of the following sentences I have been asked to: 1) State which binding principle applies to all relevant elements 2) Identify the antecedent (If none then state so) 3) State if the element is bound or free. If it is bound, is it bound locally? 4) State where there are any controlled PROs and what they are controlled by. (where there are 2 grammatical readings, analyse both using indices to disambiguate)
Sentences: a)I think the student loves herself b)Peter claimed that he likes himself c)Lucy tried to promote herself d)John suspected that she misled him
For a) I believe that the reflexive 'herself,' conforms to Binding Principle A because it is bound in its binding domain and the antecedent for this is 'the student'/'student' with it being bound locally.
I need help going through some of the other ones as I am finding binding principles quite confusing
