chapter  3
The internal and external distribution of pronominal DPs
Pages 42

Pronominal elements can be homophonous with determiners (French lellalles, Dutch 't, ... ), or not (English himlherlthem, French lui, Dutch 'm . .. ), or they can be composed, as demonstrative pronouns in many African languages, or the Welsh reduplicated pronouns discussed below. Pronominal elements can be overt or covert (e.g. pro). Overt pronominal elements can distribute as DPs (i.e. their distribution is identical to that of (specific) DPs), as clitics (their distribution is that of a head which occurs in a particular syntactic position), or as agreement morphology (i.e. as a head that shows up if an XP is or has moved through its Spec position).
