    Abstract: This paper explores the compensatory lengthening of ho7 where ho7 is a giving verb occurring in modern Taiwanese Southern Min (henceforth TSM), a major Sinitic language prevalent in Southern China and Taiwan. Previous studies investigated the nature of giving verbs from a variety of perspectives and considerable concerns have arisen over the semantic and syntactic behavior of ditransitive construction as well as the Mandarin Chinese grammatical category of gei 給 ‘give’, which all yield fruitful results.(Cheng et al. 1999) However, one of the most intriguing constructions involving ho7 , namely the “V1 ho7 (pro) V2” construction, particularly the 3rd person pronoun omitted in the indirect object position, is still under-explored. ho7 in construction “V1 ho7 (pro) V2” will lengthen when pronoun is omitted. As opposed to ordinary cases, it realizes the compensatory lengthening by glottal stop as a rest in melody. The purpose of the paper is to investigate the phenomenon in question from two aspects. They are motivation of occurrence of glottal stop (Lehiste 1979, Kreiman 1982) and boundary marker implemented in phonology-syntax interface (Trubetzkoy 1939).The discussion will start from syntactic approach (Chomsky 1981, 1995, 2005, Cheng et al. 1999, Hung 1999, Lasnik 2000, 2001, 2002, Merchant 2001.) to phonological one (Selkirk 1984, 1986, Nespor and Vogel 1986, Prince and Smolensky 1993/2004, Truckenbrodt 1999, 2005, López 2009). Based on attested evidence, I propose that the compensatory lengthening of ho7 is a boundary marker plus silent time slot implemented in phonology-syntax interface.
