Adjectival Inflection and the Licensing of Empty Categories in DP.
Kester, Ellen-Petra
Journal of Linguistics, v32 n1 p57-78 Mar 1996
Focuses on the licensing conditions on empty categories in DP, dealing in particular with the distribution of the null noun "pro" in adjectival contexts. N-"pro" is submitted to requirements of formal licensing and identification. The contrast between English and other languages with respect to N-"pro" derives from the absence versus presence of inflectional morphology. (25 references) (Author/CK)
