Abstract:

Typological differences in the formation of multiple Wh-questions are
well-known. One option is fronting all Wh-phrases to the sentence
periphery. The contributions to this volume all explore this option
from a number of perspectives. Topics covered include finer
investigations of the "classic" multiple Wh-fronting languages (such
as the South Slavic languages Bulgarian and Serbo-Croatian),
extensions to less well studied languages (Basque, Malagasy, Persian,
Yiddish), explorations for languages that don't obviously fall into
this category (German, Hungarian), peripheral effects (optionality of
fronting, Superiority vs. Anti-Superiority etc.), interface issues
(with semantics, pragmatics, and phonology), and simply theoretical
approaches aiming to capture the mechanisms involved in multiple
Wh-fronting strategies. The theoretical framework adopted throughout
is the Minimalist Program, viewed from different angles. This volume
brings together some of the leading experts on the syntax of
Wh-questions and offers up-to-date analyses of the topic. It will be
indispensable for scholars investigating multiple Wh -questions, and
will find an appropriate audience in advanced students and faculty
alike.
