Abstract

In this paper we discuss several constructions with null objects in Brazilian Portuguese (<i>BP</i>), based on Santos’s (2002, 2003) arguments that stress shift in BP is blocked by <i>pro</i>, but not by traces. In particular, we show that stress shift provides evidence for an analysis of PP-chopping relatives in terms of <i>pro </i>(Kato &#38; Nunes, this volume) and that it can also distinguish true null objects from parasitic gaps in BP.
