This chapter argues that the antecedent-pronoun relation must involve a movement relation, in a way partially similar to that stated in a recent work by John O'Neil and Norbert Hornstein. Taking this position to the extreme leads to the conclusion that accidental coreference in the sense explained by Howard Lasnik has a much narrower part to play in universal grammar (UG) than has been thought. The movement approach pursued here eliminates Condition C as a primitive component of UG and has Condition B being more fundamental than is often assumed. By adopting the derivational perspective of Chomsky's work, the idea that binding should be rethought in movement terms even more generally, including what is regarded as Condition C effects, is discussed.

Keywords:   pronouns, antecedents, movements, universal grammar, binding, Condition C, clitic doubling, strong crossover, Condition B, reflexives
