NUNES, Jairo. Erasing erasure. DELTA [online]. 2000, vol.16, n.2, pp.415-429. ISSN 1678-460X.

This paper argues that the distinction between deletion and erasure proposed by Chomsky (1995) to account for different checking possibilities should be abandoned on both conceptual and empirical grounds. As an alternative, the paper outlines an analysis based solely on deletion.

Keywords : checking theory; deletion; erasure; Minimalism.
