All natural languages contain certain elements whose interpretation depends on their linguistic (and, sometimes, non-linguistic) environment. These elements are pronominals: pronouns and reflexives. The information associated with the lexical entry for, say, pronoun she or reflexive himself, is limited and is never sufficient to provide a unique interpretation for these elements. The environment where these elements appear functions as a source of information for establishing reference.
