Title:Command in Apurinã
Contributor (author):Pickering, Wilbur N.
Date (W3CDTF):1973
Description:"Command" is used herein as defined in Ronald W. Langacker, "On Pronominalization and the Chain of Command," in David A. Reibel and Sanford A. Schane eds., Modern Studies in English, (Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey: Prentice-Hall, Inc., 1969). Conclusion: All the data considered in this paper suggests the following constraint on pronominalization for Apurinã: NPa may be used to pronominalize NPp unless NPp precedes NPa. This constraint obtains not only within sentences but between sentences and through a string of sentences. It thus appears that for Apurinã the relation 'precedes' is sufficient–-there is no motivation for a relation 'commands'.
