Download The Syntax and Semantics of Dislocations in Catalan: A Study on Asymmetric Syntax at the Peripheries of Sentence eBook
by Xavier Villalba
Romance clitic left-dislocation (CLLD) is widespread across all kinds of non root contexts, however it is forbidden in non finite wh relatives. This article investigates the extent and nature of this restriction, and the consequences it raises for the truncation vs. intervention analysis of the left periphery of embedded sentences. We will investigate whether these notions are at best epiphenomenal (Longobardi 2014) and should be considered in the light of a fine-grained microparametric or even nanoparametric distinction.
This book is the most important attempt to integrate Clitic Right Dislocation into the highly restrictive syntax following from Richard Kaynes influential Linear Correspondence Axiom. Besides offering a fully-fledged analysis of Clitic Right Dislocation and Clitic Left Dislocation within the strict standards of Kaynes proposal, the book offers a detailed description of all kinds of left- and right-detachments in Catalan, which includes a thorough discussion of a variegated kind of data, which have only been partially described in the literature

In syntax, dislocation is a sentence structure in which a constituent, which could otherwise be either an argument or an adjunct of the clause, occurs outside the clause boundaries either to its left or to its right. In this English example They went to the store, Mary and Peter the dislocation occurs to the right. The dislocated element is often separated by a pause (comma in writing) from the rest of the sentence. Its place within the clause is often occupied by a pronoun (.

Traditionally, the sentence was studied only syntagmatically, as a. .F. de Saussure stressed the fact that paradigmatics is quite natural for morphology, while syntax should be studied primarily as the linear connections of words.
Traditionally, the sentence was studied only syntagmatically, as a string of constituent parts fulfilling the corresponding syntactic functions. Still, some systemic relations between syntactic structures were traditionally described derivationally to reveal the functional semantics of the sentence.
