Title: Syntactic Dependencies and Relative Phrases in Hindi
Written By: Veena D. Dwivedi

This dissertation explores various syntactic dependencies from relative phrases in Hindi. In addition to Scrambling, Topicalisation and Left Dislocation, Topic Dislocation is recognized. This non-movement relation is limited to referential NPs which are related to null pronominals; because no movement is involved, Topic Dislocation is not subject to Subjancency. Several cases of asymmetric coordination, including correlatives and 'that' clauses, are also explored in detail.
