Edges in Syntax: Scrambling and Cyclic Linearization

Heejeong Ko


This book provides a discussion concerning cyclic syntax by examining the characteristics of syntactic edges and their interactions with linearization and movement. In particular, it contributes to the current debate over how cyclic Spell-out affects the (re)ordering of elements in scrambling. The chapter develops a proposal that accounts for certain peculiarities associated with syntactic edges by exploring three major factors in cyclic syntax. Specifically, it shows that the probe-goal theory of movement restricts certain types of movement out of edges—namely that, (sub-)extraction from an i ... More

Keywords: edges, scrambling, cyclic linearization, Spell-out, predication, floating quantifiers, locality, sub-extraction, secondary predicates, predicate fronting
