The Complementizer Phase

Ángel J. Gallego

Oxford University Press

This chapter investigates Chomsky's (2008) phase‐based analysis of CED effects, which capitalizes on an opacity created by phasal specifiers (so‐called ‘edges’). After reviewing different pieces of evidence, it is argued that an Agree/Activity Condition approach to islandhood phenomena is theoretically and empirically superior, a conclusion that is pushed to A‐over‐A situations where sub‐extraction takes place from dependents displaced to the CP edge.

Keywords:   aboutness dependent, activity condition, CED effects, edge, freezing
