as long as we're pushing back the date for nonsyntactic accounts of the
coordinate structure constraint and violations thereof, may i point out
susumu kuno's (1976) 'subject, theme, and the speaker's empathy' in li's
subject and topic (academic press)?

The paper he refers to is entitled "Ample Negatives", and appeared in
CLS 10 in 1974. The Q-A turn sequence he cites is the sentence that
launched *my* paper.

anyone interested in non-syntactic explanations for the CSC, as well
as arguments against movement rules, might also want to take a look
at my 1974 Univ. of Texas at Austin dissertation - "The
Role of Topic and Comment in Linguistic Theory", published in
the Outstanding Dissertations in Linguistics series in 1988.
