EPSA [5]-3

Like EPSA [5]-1 and [5]-5, this Experiment deals with a prediction made under the language-particular hypothesis that otagai in Japanese shares a formal property with English each other. It focuses on the requirement that otagai must be c-commanded by its antecedent. EPSA [5]-1 deals with the locality condition regarding where the antecedent of otagai must occur in relation to otagai, in addition to the "c-command requirement." satisfy EPSA [5]-3 tests the "c-command requirement," which is satisfied both in Schema A and Schema B in EPSA [5]-1. For this reason, EPSA [5]-3 is considered as a Sub-Experiment for EPSA [5]-1. See Appendix on otagai : Section 4.5.
