English has what is called a reciprocal expression each other, which we will treat as a single word with a space in its orthography. In the analysis in Chapter 7, we say it should be treated like reflexive pronouns; that is, we mark it lexically as [MODE ana], making it subject to Principle A of the Binding Theory.

Provide examples to show that reciprocals generally behave like reflexives with respect to binding. That is, give examples analogous to those provided in Chapters 1 and 7 as motivation for our binding principles, but with reciprocals in place of reflexives.

What is the value for NUMBER in the lexical entry for each other? Justify your answer. This will require both referring to aspects of our analysis of binding, and providing acceptable and unacceptable examples.
