The (Non-)Existence of Gapping in Chinese and Its Implications for the Theory of Gapping.
Tang, Sze-Wing
Journal of East Asian Linguistics, v10 n3 p201-24 Jul 2001
Shows that there are at least two types of gapping in natural languages: canonical gapping and LPD. Argues that Chinese has some gapping sentences that result from ATB movement from V to "v." Data from Chinese affirm Johnson's (1994) theory of gapping that gapping occurs in those languages only with verb movement. (Author/VWL)
