抄録: This paper focuses on the extent to which languages vary with respect to the situations describable with reciprocal constructions and considers why such a variation arises. Following the P&P framework, this paper attempts to identify the parameters which give rise to the variation. Adopting the MP, it proposes that the parameters are given in the form of values of features associated with each reciprocal marker and the variation under discussion is explained in terms of the values of these features. It also proposes that these features are not simply listed in UG and assembled randomly, but rather are hierarchically ordered. It further argues some feature values are allowed to remain unspecified by UG, providing supporting evidence for our approach from language acquisition. This approach enables us to distinguish stages in the process of acquisition and to explain how children choose their target grammar among the options given by UG.
