Sloppy/Strict Identity, Empty Objects, and NP Ellipsis.
Kim, Soowon
Journal of East Asian Linguistics, v8 n4 p255-84 Oct 1999
Proposes that, with Fiengo and May's (1994) indexing theory, a full-fledged reconstruction approach to null argument phenomena in such languages as Chinese, Japanese, and Korean is possible. Argues that null noun phrases in these languages must be empty phrase markers underlyingly, not empty pronouns, and their reference properties can be determined only at LF after reconstruction.
