Verbs with the Reflexive Pronoun and Constructions with 'Self' in Old and Early Middle English. This paper offers a detailed survey of occurrences of English reflexive pronouns which are marked with respect to the binding theory of Chomskyan generative grammar. Through a large corpus of attested examples found in contemporary nonlinguistic prose, English reflexive pronouns are shown to violate Chomsky's Binding Principle A in a productive way.

The grammar of Old English is quite different from that of Modern English, predominantly by being much more inflected.

Nouns in Old English had the categories of number, gender, and case. Besides, there is the reflexive possessive pronoun sin, which is also declined in the way of strong adjectives

Nouns in Old English had the categories of number, gender, and case. Gender in OE is grammatical, not logical or natural. This means that nouns and pronouns followed different patterns of declension as a function of linguistic characteristics of the words. As for possessive pronouns, these are derived from the genitive case of the personal pronouns of all persons and numbers. The possessive pronouns min, þin, uncer, incer, ure, eower are declined in the same way as strong adjectives. Besides, there is the reflexive possessive pronoun sin, which is also declined in the way of strong adjectives. There are two demonstrative pronouns in OE: se ‘that’ and þes ‘this’.

Old English is characterised by a significant number of synonyms. Wendan 'to turn' takes the accusative as a coreferential pronoun in the reflexive construction, while gewendan 'to turn' takes the dative, as in. Verbs were not necessarily used for alliteration, except for infinitives and participles, but they also suffered conflict for survival.

A descriptive study of verbs used reflexively in Old and Early Middle English, this book looks at the two types of reflexive expressions observed in those earlier periods - the simple reflexive, i.e., verbs with a reflective pronoun, and the compound reflexive, i.e., verbs with a reflexive pronoun intensified by self. The development of reflexive constructions in Old English and Early Middle English is discussed in chapter 1, and there are examples taken from Old English verse, prose, glosses, and Early Middle English verse and prose in chapter 2 and 3 to show, as well as the variety, the prototypes of constructions which find their way into Modern English usage.
