This thesis makes a comparative study of English and Chinese empty categories on the basis of Government theory, Binding theory and Control theory. The thesis aims at probing into the overall properties of ECs of the two languages as well as digging out the syntactic and semantic representations in English and Chinese ECs. It also has some reference value for second language acquisition.
