  abstract = {This paper attempts to extend from syntax (basic word order) to morphology (the distribution of pronouns and their exponents) one of the three functional principles that Tomlin (1986) invokes in order to account for the basic word order frequencies, the Verb-Object Bonding Principle. In conjunction with Bybee's (1985) parameters of fusion and distance, the VOB principle makes two specific predictions with respect to the pronominal system: (i) that the object pronoun is more tightly bonded to the verb than the subject pronoun; and (ii) that the object bound pronoun occurs closer to the verb stem than the subject bound pronoun. Agreement markers are excluded from the testing of these predictions, since the fusion of the verb and the pronoun via agreement is known to be motivated by something quite different from VOB. On the basis of the theory and analysis presented in Bresnan and Mchombo (1987), referential (incorporated) pronouns are identified as distinct from (functionally ambiguous) agreement markers. Two Nuclear Micronesian languages, Kusaiean and Ponapean, provide initial evidence in support of the extended VOB principle. Further, a small language sample (40 languages) akin to that used in Bybee (1985) is set up to test the cross-linguistic validity of the predictions. It is found that the same principle that has been convincingly shown to be in effect in basic word order is also operative in the pronominal system.},
