Clause Structure and Adjuncts in Austronesian Languages is a collection of
papers devoted to the syntactic analysis of modification and extraction
strategies in Austronesian languages such as Kavalan, Malagasy, Niuean,
Seediq, and Tagalog. Written by some of the leading scholars in the field,
it elucidates the categorial and phrase structural status as well as the
scopal behavior of sentence-level adverbs, ordering constraints on
adjectival modifiers, and the nature of unbounded dependencies in
interaction with Philippine-type voice systems. Guglielmo Cinque's
universal ordering hypothesis for adverbs and current work on remnant
movement serve as theoretical points of reference.

More particularly the book contains an analysis of lower VP-adverbs in
Kavalan as serial verbs (Chang), a defense of two types of adverbial heads
in Seediq (Holmer), an account of possible DP-internal serializations in
Niuean in terms of remnant movement (Kahnemuyipour Massam), a plea for
relative, scope-based adverb ordering in Tagalog (Kaufman), a clefting
approach to unbounded dependencies in Malagasy (Potsdam), a critical
assessment of constraints on remnant movement as applied to adverb
orderings in Malagasy (Thiersch), and an analysis of the Malagasy voice
system on the basis of clitic left-dislocation (Travis). The editors'
introduction undertakes a critical survey of the relevant empirical and
theoretical background.

A substantial part of the empirical facts are presented here for the first
time, and the book will inspire additional systematic investigation of the
often neglected aspects of modificational strategies in Austronesian languages.

The book will be of value to linguists interested in contemporary syntactic
analysis and to everyone seeking a deeper understanding of the formal
properties of Austronesian.
