Representation of zero and dummy subject pronouns within multi-strata dependency framework
The objective of this paper is to discuss a formal representation of subject pronoun within a multi-strata dependency model. We propose criteria to describe consistently subject pronoun variations, naming subject pronouns that have no meaning and/or no morpho-phonological expression. We will present particular syntactic structures raised from a change of voice category; and will emphasize the problematic representation of Pro-Drop impersonal construction within the multi-strata framework.
