Deriving the CSC and Unifying ATB and PG Constructions through Sideward Movement
Gerardo Fernández-Salgueiro
156-162 (complete paper or proceedings contents)

Abstract

In this paper it is argued that the analysis coordinate and subordinate structures should be unified in terms of their syntax. More specifically, it is argued that in coordinate structures in which two TPs are coordinated, the second conjunct is adjoined to the vP. A redundancy then arises between the Coordinate Structure Constraint (CSC) and the Condition on Extraction Domains (CED). The author argues that the former is an epiphenomenon and that extraction from the first conjunct and extraction from the second conjunct are banned by different principles. Finally, further evidence is provided in favor of an analysis of Across-the-Board (ATB) and Parasitic Gap (PG) constructions in terms of Sideward Movement (Nunes 1995, 2004; Hornstein & Nunes 2002).
