Abstract: This squib observes that object extraction in Chinese control structures is sensitive to the syllable-count of the control verb. Monosyllabic control verbs do not allow extraction of their objects, but disyllabic control verbs do. It is proposed that monosyllabic control verbs in Chinese are required to be merged with the following infinitive verb. An intervening trace of the moved object blocks the phonological merger and thus object extraction is barred in control structures.
