EPSA [5]-5

Like EPSA [5]-1 and [5]-3, 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 have a linguistic antecedent. There is not much structure in this EPSA Experiment; it consists of three *Examples where otagai appears without a linguistic antecedent, along with the corresponding okExamples. EPSA [5]-1 deals with a condition (the locality condition) regarding where the antecedent of otagai must occur in relation to otagai. EPSA [5]-5, which deals with the requirement that otagai must have a linguistic antecedent, is thus used as a Sub-Experiment for EPSA [5]-1. See Appendix on otagai : Section 4.4.
