Query:   Dear Linguists

I am currently investigating how adult Persian speakers acquire wh-movement
and Auxiliary raising in English Interrogative clauses. However, as some of
my subjects are Arabic-Persian bilinguals, I am interested to find whether
their performance would vary from Persian monolinguals. I appreciate it if
you would kindly introduce standard works analyzing Arabic clause structure
(declarative and interrogatives) within a generative framework.

Thanks in advance
