Abstract:

Adverbial Clauses, Main Clause Phenomena, and Composition of the LeftPeriphery uses the cartographic theory to examine the left periphery of theEnglish clause and compare it to the left-peripheral structures of otherlanguages. Liliane Haegeman argues that the dissimilar surface characteristicsof these languages (primarily English and Romance, but also Gungbe, Hungarian,Hebrew, Dutch, and others) can be explained by universal constraints, and thatthe same structures apply across the languages. Haegeman focuses on mainclause transformations--movement operations that can only take place in mainclauses.
