Based on the above examples, the major function of resumptive pronouns is to block breach of syntactic restraints. However, this is not the only role of resumptive pronouns (Frank, 23). Previous arguments have seen a resumptive pronoun as ways of saving a sentence that has been stated by a speaker without noticing that it is difficult or impossible to grammatically finish (Frank, 23). For a sentence that is syntactically complicated to be clarified, English speakers employ the use of these resumptive pronouns. In several languages, English inclusive, resumptive pronouns are essential if a sentence is to be grammatical (Frank and William, 89). They are hence needed to assist interpretation as well as performance in certain syntactic forms.
According to previous arguments, linguists believe that these pronouns come about due to syntactic processing (Frank and William, 89). On the basis of grammatical processing, resumptive pronouns are used by speakers in clarifying sentences that are syntactically complicated (Frank and William, 89). In this case, these pronouns are used as hook backs to the precursor (Frank and William, 89). This indicates that according to this point of view, these pronouns are perceived as a type of helper which is introduced into the sentence for the purpose of making the comprehension of these sentences simpler.
In relative clauses, resumptive pronouns are normally not seen as grammatical though their point of grammaticality increases as they move away from the head. Consequently, (4b) appears better than (4a). Some development in whether resumptive pronouns are judged as grammatical may also come about when these pronouns are embedded, as shown in (4c).
Grounding my argument on the aspects that seem to impact on the distribution of English resumptive pronouns, and owing to the fact that distance is not relevant to the principles of syntax, building a grammatical report of resumptive pronouns in similar
