Ways of Structure Building

Željko Bošković

Oxford University Press

The chapter provides a new argument for Chomsky’s (2008) parallel movement hypothesis, which eliminates traditional A-A’ movement feeding relations, based on quantifier float in Icelandic object shift constructions, and shows that the mechanism in question provides a tool for teasing apart different analyses of Icelandic object shift. In particular, it provides an argument that the landing site of Icelandic object shift is higher than SpecvP/SpecAgroP.

Keywords:   object shift, parallel movement, quantifier float, Icelandic, phase-impenetrability condition, A-A' movement feeding
