(p.199) 6 Conclusion
The Grammar of Q

Some future applications of the ‘Q-based account’ are explored. First, types of A-bar movement other than wh-fronting are discussed. Q-based analyses of these movement-types are proposed, some of which are shown to have been independently proposed in the literature. Free relatives are also examined. It is argued that a Q-based account could help to explain why such free relatives have the internal syntactic form of wh-questions but the external syntactic distribution of their left-peripheral operators.

Keywords:   A-bar movement, focus-movement, relativization, free relative, matching effects
