    surface morphology is notoriously inconsistent both language-internally and cross-linguistically in providing any kind of reliable reflex of covert syntactic features. this paper addresses the difficult question of how the acquirer is able to deduce the presence/absence of particular (covert) features on functional items, here features of finiteness, given that they cannot rely on morphology. the paper has the following goals. first, it makes a fairly narrow empirical claim, specifically, that telugu does not have pro in its lexicon (and therefore does not have control). clausal subjects can easily be accounted for by pro, needed in telugu for independent reasons. second, because pro/control is so closely associated with finiteness, the paper explores whether there are other elements in telugu that correspond to those usually associated with finiteness cross-linguistically.
