Abstract
Ahn, Hee-Don & Cho, Sungeun. 2011. Notes on Apparent DP Ellipsis: A Reply to Lee & Kim (2010). Korean Journal of Linguistics, 36-2, 457-471. Ahn & Cho (2009, 2010) suggest that ellipsis is licensed by functional heads such as C, T, and D which can bear an [E] feature. In the same reasoning, they suggest that a lexical category like V or semi-lexical category v which gives a theta role cannot have an [E] feature. Under the analysis, it is predicted that when DP is directly selected by the lexical category V, which cannot bear an [E] feature, DP ellipsis isn't allowed. However, there is an example which apparently shows that DP ellipsis seems to be allowed. Ahn & Cho (2009, 2010) argue that the missing constituent is in fact a pro, but not derived from DP ellipsis which is theoretically impossible. Recently, Lee & Kim (2010) claim that Korean has both pro and DP ellipsis. This paper aims to explore the examples that seem to be DP ellipsis and argue that it indeed involves pro.
