One of the several innovations to Reinhart and Reuland’s binding theory is the idea that reflexives make the predicate they are an argument of reflexive. This derives some of the core cases of the locality condition that governs how far a reflexive may be from its antecedent. It is known to have counterexamples. This paper attempts to define what a reflexive predicate is so that some of those counterexamples are removed.
