|Structures and Strategies: Topics on the Structural Correlate of Discourse-Related Syntactic Operations|
Adriana Belletti (Univ. di Siena)
22 septembre 2008
Program: A number of discourse-related syntactic structures will be investigated in terms of a detailed cartography of syntactic configurations. Special attention will be devoted to the analysis of cleft (and pseudo-cleft) sentences in different (Romance) languages aiming at differentiating their possibly varying discourse value and at clarifying their relation with other (clause and small clause) structures, as well as to the analysis of structures crucially involving the edge of the clause. The issue as to how different syntactic computations may be made appeal to in similar contexts will also be carefully discussed, bringing evidence from acquisition (and pathology) in the domain of subject versus object relative clauses and passive.
