The current quantity encompasses a number of papers offered on the twenty first and twenty second Comparative Germanic Syntax Workshop held on the college of California, Santa Cruz and the college of Stuttgart. The contributions supply insightful discussions of a number of themes of present curiosity for syntactic conception at the foundation of comparative facts from quite a lot of modern and historic Germanic languages. The theoretical concerns explored contain: the left outer edge, with a couple of contributions bearing on the professionals and contras of cartographic bills; assorted elements of be aware order and the way it arises from circulate and clause constitution; the interaction of thematic family and case thought with the conclusion of DPs; and the remedy of finiteness and modal constructions. This e-book is of curiosity to syntacticians operating in a comparative point of view and to complicated undergraduates.

Sample text

Every boy, his mother him loves 14. The two constituents cannot occur in the reversed order either: (i) *… e a chi la stessa cosa disse suo figlio? … and to whom the same thing said his son  Anna Cardinaletti (42) a. … e questo disse anche il Sottosegretario. … and this said also the Vice Minister b. La stessa cosa negò __ senza commentare __ il suo avvocato. the same thing denied without commenting the his lawyer c. *… e la stessa cosa a chi disse suo figlio? ’ Cinque (1990: 88) concludes that “these are all expected properties, if Wh-movement of a null operator is indeed involved” in RP.

Who the cause of the riot has been? Notice that inverse copular sentences have certain similarities with RP in that they involve raising of (a part of) a predicate to the status of topic and are root structures in English (Guéron 1994). In Italian, however, they are non-root and pattern with locative and dative PP fronting (Cardinaletti 2004: 125). 31 The parallelism we have established between Italian RP and subject-verb inversion constructions in English is confirmed by their common syntactic (postverbal heavy subjects) and pragmatic (non-subject topics) peculiarities.

The sentences are possible with a clitic pronoun, as expected if CLLD can involve a lower Topic position, and as Focalization, as expected if the Focus projection is lower than the high Topic position (sentences (28a) and (29a) from Menza 2006: 109):12 (28) a. Il libro, portamelo! me-it b. ) The lady in grey eccola entrare all’improvviso nella stanza. here her enter suddenly into-the room (29) a. Il libro portami, non il quaderno! me, not the notebook Sentence (i) is however not fully ungrammatical for me.
