This paper capitalizes on psycholinguistic evidence from real-time sentence comprehension to choose between two opposing positions on reflexivity: The syntax-only field on the one hand, and the syntax+discourse field on the other hand. The study presented here utilized a cross-modal paradigm to measure the amount of processing resources required for interpretation. The obtained data are in favor of a syntax+discourse approach to reflexivity, thus suggesting that logophoricity goes beyond syntax. The data reveal a significant contrast between so-called coargument reflexives (whose interpretation is purely syntactic) and logophoric reflexives (implying that their interpretation requires access to syntactic and non-syntactic information).
