Abstract

This paper deals with the phonology-syntax interface by discussing the role of empty categories in the resolution of stress clash in Brazilian Portuguese. I argue that the stress clash in a V ec Adv environment can be resolved by retraction of the first stress if ec is a trace of movement, but not if it is a null pronoun (pro). I show also that the blocking of stress shift in Brazilian Portuguese is not a consequence of Case marking.
