At the beginning of the theme group year, during the initial workshop, it was decided that each group member would contribute five cases to the encyclopaedia of syntactic case studies which the group means to publish. The following are those assigned to myself:
Split Topicalisation and Remnant Movement Clearly the goal of finishing five cases in one semester may have been somewhat too ambitious. So I have done only some preliminary, mainly bibliographical research on all five of these cases and have worked on the Free Relatives case, which is now almost complete.
