Tsai, Wei-Tien Dylan
Journal of East Asian Linguistics, v8 n1 p39-73 Jan 1999
Develops Chomsky's proposal that the theoretical status of D-structure should be nullified in favor of alternation between Merger and Chain Formation, arguing that Merger has priority over Chain Formation in building A'-dependencies. Establishes a cross-linguistic correlation between wh-questions and quantification, discussing Chinese, Japanese, and English and noting that only nominals (not adverbs) are subject to unselective binding.
