15 Nonetheless, this is not always the case. In questions, such as (38) for example, it is not the speaker but rather the addressee who is included among the non-specific referents of the reflexive impersonal. (38) Polish Co sięˉ robiłoˉ naˉ przerwach? ’ A clause such as (38) would normally be understood as asking about practices in which the addressee was involved but definitely not the speaker. In declaratives the exclusion of the speaker can be achieved contextually, as in (39) and (40) in which the speaker explicitly excludes him/herself from the range of potential referents.
Thus a clause such as (42) in Polish is only felicitous if uttered by a time traveller. In Italian the extent to which the speaker and addressee are included depends on the specificity of time reference and the nature of the verb. Cinque (1988: 542) states that while with transitive and unergative verbs in contexts of specific time reference the typically reading of the referent of the reflexive impersonal is people in general, with other verbs such as unaccusative and copulative ones specific time reference induces a first person plural interpretation.
