Abstract
The Korean sentences involving empty subject(s) raise a serious
Question of indetermination in parsing. The fact that such sentences are
parsed without conscious processing difficulty suggests either no
reanalysis is involved there or the reanalysis, if any, is automatic. Both
possibilities are pursuable and the empirical coverage is satisfactory in
both cases. For conceptual reasons, however, we pursue the possibility
in which no reanalysis is assumed and a phrase structure permitting an
empty category in the matrix subject position is posited. Considering the
syntactic properties of Korean, to postulate such a structure is reasonable
from the syntactic viewpoint as well as from the parsing perspective.
