most pro-drop languages may omit the SUBJ in main and dependent clauses: Ital. ‘(ZERO)gli ho dato un libro perché (ZERO) voleva leggerlo’ instead of ‘IO gli ho dato un libro perché LUI voleva leggerlo’.

Subject: Expression of syntactic arguments in embedded clauses
I would be very grateful for any references concerning expression of syntactic arguments in adjunct clauses and contrasts between structures where an argument (e.g., subject) is expressed ('I gave him a book, because HE wanted to read it') and those where an argument is omitted ('I gave him a book because (ZERO) wanted to read it').
Thanks a lot in advance,
Alexander Letuchiy, Moscow
