Anaphoric Pro-Clause

Jeong-Shik Lee**
** Professor, Wonkwang University


This paper newly discusses the anaphoric pro-clause construction from Korean in which the relative clause is replaced by the pro-form kulen, and attempts to account for its morphological and syntactic properties under the head-intial hypothesis for Korean. I propose that the copy of the raised relative clause is resumed as pro-form. I then argue that the head-initial approach offers simpler, superior derivations of various examples of this construction including right-dislocated ones than the head-final approach. In particular, the results of the discussions show why the head-final bi-clausal approach fails to deal with right-dislocation facts.
