Abstract:

This monograph addresses divergent views in the linguistic literature on whetherGerman displays the 'that'-trace effect and other subject/objectasymmetries commonly found for long extractions in English and otherlanguages. Using newly developed rating methodologies, the author exposesconsistent and robust subject/object asymmetries in German - a surprisinglyunequivocal result given that the existence of these effects is controversial.This finding raises important questions: how can one account for thediscrepancy between the clear experimental evidence on the one hand, and thelack of consensus in the linguistic literature on the other? And secondly, itraises again the old question of why subject extractions are dispreferred. Thiswork also provides intriguing new insights into the long-standing question on howto analyse German constructions such as 'Wer glaubst du hat recht'? -the 'parenthesis versus extraction debate'. In this work decisive evidence pointsin favour of the parenthetical analysis.
