Subject Language(s):  Lao

Query:   Greetings,

I was wondering if any of you were native speakers of Vietnamese,
Thai, or Laotian. If you are, could you tell me whether your language
(please specify) has productive object ellipsis (i.e. can drop the object
freely), as well as whether your language has copy-raising (as in
English "John(i) looks like he(i)'s gonna win.").

This is for an NSF proposal that I am putting together and if you could
furnish examples of each in your replies, I would be most grateful.
