Abstract:

This study of the interaction of syntax, pragmatics, and prosody in left
peripheral positions focuses on two left dislocation constructions in
Czech, Hanging Topic Left Dislocation and Contrastive Left Dislocation. The
structure of the left periphery is delineated through a thorough
description and analysis of these constructions with respect to their
syntactic behavior, discourse function and prosody. Following recent work
on the Syntax-Phonology interface, prosody in these constructions is shown
to interact in interesting ways with the narrow syntax. Unexpected patterns
of left-edge resumption are explained through the role of the PF component
of the grammar.
