Abstract:

This monograph addresses divergent views in the linguistic literature on whether
German displays the 'that'-trace effect and other subject/object
asymmetries commonly found for long extractions in English and other
languages. Using newly developed rating methodologies, the author exposes
consistent and robust subject/object asymmetries in German - a surprisingly
unequivocal result given that the existence of these effects is controversial.
This finding raises important questions: how can one account for the
discrepancy between the clear experimental evidence on the one hand, and the
lack of consensus in the linguistic literature on the other? And secondly, it
raises again the old question of why subject extractions are dispreferred. This
work also provides intriguing new insights into the long-standing question on how
to analyse German constructions such as 'Wer glaubst du hat recht'? -
the 'parenthesis versus extraction debate'. In this work decisive evidence points
in favour of the parenthetical analysis.
