Abstract:

Cleft constructions occur across languages and are much analyzed in
relation to syntax, semantics and pragmatics. Mika Kizu, working in a
Principles and Parameters framework, with some consideration of the
Minimalist Program, provides the first coherent account of cleft
constructions in Japanese. She claims that the construction is analyzed on
a par with topic constructions and some types of relative clause. One of
the most interesting properties, the syntactice phenomenon of
'connectivity' is closely examined.
