Abstract:

The left periphery of clausal structures has been a prominent topic
of research in generative linguistics during the last decades. Closer
examination of its properties unfolds a rich array of perspectives
like the status of barriers for extraction and government, the
articulation of the topic focus structure, the fixation of wh-scope,
the marking of clausal types, the interaction of syntactic structure
with inflectional morphology as well as the determination of sentence
mood and illocutionary force to mention just a few. The purpose of
this book is to collect different and relevant studies in this field
and to give a general overview of the various theoretical approaches
concerned with morphological, syntactic and semantic properties
together with the diachronic development of the left periphery.
