Abstract:

The use of resumptive pronouns is quite productive in Mandarin Chinese;
however, their distribution has rarely been studied in a systematic way. This
book not only gives a thorough description of the general distribution of
resumptive pronouns in different contexts but also offers a theoretical
account in the framework of the Minimalist Program. Different types of
A'-dependencies, mediated by gaps and by resumptive pronouns, are derived by
different minimalist mechanisms, such as Agree, Match and Move. These
mechanisms only apply at Narrow Syntax and do not uniformly obey locality
constraints. Importantly, interpretative properties of an A'-bound element,
such as reconstruction effects, is only related to its internal structure
irrespective of how the A'-chain concerned is derived. From this perspective,
resumptivity is an exclusively syntactic-related phenomenon and is thus not
subject to any interface condition. Adopting a comparative approach, this
study improves the general understanding of resumptivity crosslinguistically.
