This article looks at the division of labour between syntax and the interpretive systems by focusing on patterns of anaphoric dependencies. By eliminating the notion of an index, the minimalist programme enforces a strict distinction between how syntactic, semantic, and discourse factors contribute to anaphoric relations.

Keywords: syntax; interpretative systems; anaphoric dependencies; index; minimalist programme
