This work reconsiders obviation in Romance subjunctive clauses in light of diachronic evidence from French and Spanish. A detailed examination of coreference in subjunctive clauses in Old French and Old Spanish is presented. Furthermore, it is argued that Old French lacked the Disjoint Reference Required (DRR), but that Old Spanish evinced a DRR from the earliest documents. Contents: Introduction; Diachronic Evidence From French and Spanish; Obviation and Temporal Argument Structure; Issues of of Language Change; Summary and Conclusions; Bibliography; Index of Names; Index of Subjects.
