Ko sˇta kupuje? who what buys b. *Ko kupuje sˇta? ’ (64) Serbo-Croatian (from Bosˇkovic´ 1999, 2002) a. *Sˇta sˇta uslovljava? what what conditions b. Sˇta uslovljava sˇta? ’ c. Sˇta neprestano sˇta uslovljava? what constantly what conditions d. Sˇta neprestano uslovljava sˇta? 28 (65) [sˇta sˇta i uslovljava sˇta i ] Bosˇkovic´ (2002) presents compelling evidence for this approach by showing that comparable instances of ‘‘exceptional’’ wh-in-situ in Romanian, as illustrated in (66b), are able to license parasitic gaps, as shown in (67).

By deleting chain links, Chain Reduction circumvents this problem and allows structures containing chains to be properly linearized.
