Adverbial Clauses, Main Clause Phenomena, and the Composition of the Left Periphery

Liliane Haegeman

Oxford University Press

Pursuing the analysis developed in the preceding chapters, this chapter opens questions for future research. It is a survey of finite that clauses which resist main clause phenomena. It shows that such clauses too are characterized by double asymmetry, suggesting ceteris paribus that a movement account can also be invoked for their derivation. The account finds its ancestors in the secondary literature and in particular in proposals according to which the clause types in question are derived as (free) relatives. Based on the literature, comparative data from a number of languages (e.g., Gungbe, Bulgarian, Dutch, Icelandic) are discussed and elaborated and support the analyses proposed.

Keywords:   finite clauses, main clause phenomena, double asymmetry, clause types
