Abstract:

Adverbial Clauses, Main Clause Phenomena, and Composition of the Left
Periphery uses the cartographic theory to examine the left periphery of the
English clause and compare it to the left-peripheral structures of other
languages. Liliane Haegeman argues that the dissimilar surface characteristics
of these languages (primarily English and Romance, but also Gungbe, Hungarian,
Hebrew, Dutch, and others) can be explained by universal constraints, and that
the same structures apply across the languages. Haegeman focuses on main
clause transformations--movement operations that can only take place in main
clauses.
