Phil Branigan

This chapter analyzes Germanic embedded clause structure, in which provocation within the “left periphery” is shown to explain the distribution and intricacies of various types of complementizers across the language family. The discussions cover evidence for Fin-to-Force movement; wh-movement; and the distribution of embedded verb-second clauses.

Keywords:   embedded clause structure, language, complementizers
