Book Information


Title: Minimalist Essays on Brazilian Portuguese Syntax
Edited By: Jairo Nunes
Series Title: Linguistik Aktuell/Linguistics Today 142

This collection of papers discusses some of the major syntactic properties
of Brazilian Portuguese from a minimalist perspective. The volume focuses
on movement and empty category issues and brings new empirical material on
a variety of topics (null subjects and finite control, possessive and
existential constructions, factive constructions, relative clauses, null
objects and stress shift, preposition duplication, VP topicalization, and
ellipsis). The book is of interest to a wide spectrum of linguists working
on theoretical and comparative syntax.
