Subject: Split Infinitives, English Syntax

Dear all,

I have been working on the 'split infinitives' construction in English.
As I have just started browsing relevant ariticles on this topic, I have
some difficulties in obtaining relevant articles or books on this topic.

I am wondering whether or not anyone can give me some relevant information
regarding which paper or book to start in order to expand my research
interest and to explore my research approach. Or it would be just nice if
you could give me a list of relevant references or website that I should
consult with.

Thank you in advance for your kind and prompt reaction in this matter.
