Abstract

This paper discusses reflexive and control constructions in San Lucas Quiaviní Zapotec (Lee 2003) and Hmong (Mortensen 2003), where instead of a reflexive in the former and a null category in the latter, one may find a copy of the antecedent. The paper argues that these constructions provide compelling evidence for a movement analysis of control (Hornstein 2001, 2003; Boeckx & Hornstein 2003, 2004) and reflexivization (Hornstein 2001), as well as the proposal that the phonetic realization of copies generated by movement is regulated by linearization and morphological requirements (Nunes 1999, 2004).
