Qs: Copy Without Deletion
Editor for this issue: Kevin Burrows
We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was
instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.
In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

Subject: Copy Without Deletion
German allows for an intermediate wh-trace in C to be phonetically realized
if it is monomorphemic (Nunes 2001 etc):
1. wen meinst du wen sie liebt
whom believe you whom she loves
Chinese resultative clause also does not delete the lower copy of verb, like:
2. ta kan shu kan de hen lei
he read books read DE very tired
I am trying to argue for copying without deletion. Does any of you here
know more data from other languages in this regards? Thanks a lot.
