Abstract: In this paper I have shown that the defining properties of wh-in-situ constructions in spanish (nonneutral word order and the SFR)can be derived from their phonological properties. To be more precise, in situ wh-phrases in spanish need to be last within their intonational phrase. Using Stjepanović’s (1999, 2003) system as a tool, I have accounted for this property. In situ wh-phrases
appear in this position as a result of the joint work of the stress assignment algorithm (Zubizarreta (1998)) and the Copy Theory of movement. My analysis has proven successful in offering a unified account of wh-in-situ in Spanish . Furthermore, I have been able to offer an account of the crosslinguistic
differences between Spanish, French and English wh-in-situ constructions.
