This monograph presents the results of a syntactic and focus-
theoretical investigation of secondary predication constructions. 
The syntactic analysis is couched in the principles and parameters
theory. The focus analysis addresses the question of the prosodic
realization of secondary predication constructions as well as their
focus projection capacities and compares them not only to each other,
but also to focus projection regularities in primary predications. 
This multilayered account shows that although the various types of 
secondary predication constructions have many aspects in common, they 
differ with respect to their distributional, binding-theoretic, and 
focus structure properties.
