Abstract: It is shown that under mild conditions the path-component of the identity in the dual group $ G\hat \emptyset $ of an Abelian topological group G is precisely the union of the one-parameter subgroups of $ G\hat \emptyset $. This yields several corollaries, including a necessary condition for certain groups to be reflexive (to satisfy the Pontrjagin duality theorem), and a negative answer to a question of N. Noble.
