See also Kitahara () and Hornstein (). It is obvious that legitimate objects at the semantic interfaces in () cannot be chains of the type just discussed. With information about 2-roles exchanged at TF, there is no reason to assume that the computational system at work within the I-domain has access to any structure of the V-domain: that would be highly redundant. Chains are established at the I-domain and enter GF, but these chains differ from the type mentioned above in not having the tail in a theta-marked position.

But such a description would erroneously predict do-insertion also in cases like () where the subject is the wh-word of the clause: () (a) *Who did call? (b) Who called? Consistency forbids us to claim that there is a strong feature forcing did to be in C° in () but not in (). , the difference between () and () with regard to do-insertion is better accounted for in terms of syntax and semantics at this point. Since the thesis that syntax is an autonomous system entails no claim whatsoever about the closeness of the fit between form and meaning, the demonstration of such a fit neither supports nor defeats the autonomy thesis.

The wh-quantifier must be interpreted in Spec-CP, hence it is the copy in the A-position that must be deleted. There is no restriction of this type on the associate, thus if the copy in Spec-CP is deleted, the associate will be interpreted in the A-position, and the anaphor is bound by the antecedent. Multiple Interfaces  This account is summarized in (), where the deleted parts are crossed out. ) has shown, there are several problems with an approach to reconstruction where the quantifier and its associate are separate at LF, both empirical and conceptual ones.
