In particular it rules out abstraction over variable occurrences in parametric restrictions unless the parameter itself is included.
In "Anaphora and Quantification in Situation Semantics", Gawron and Peters showed that the Absorption Principle has intuitively correct consequences in applications to quantificational and anaphoric semantics, but Sem, Saebo, Verne and Vestre point out cases of incorrect consequences.
The present paper provides an analysis of the problematic cases in which the Absorption Principle is maintained. A key part of the analysis is the postulation that anaphors may have quantified NPs as antecedents, a position which has been vigorously advocated by Evans As a consequence, anaphors of this type are called E-Type'.
