The Sound Patterns of Syntax

Katalin É. Kiss

Oxford University Press

The paper argues that the free postverbal order of the Hungarian sentence cannot be either the result of random base‐generation, or the result of syntactic Scrambling or flattening. It is a PF operation, because it also affects postverbal adverbials and quantifiers c‐commanding their scope at the interfaces. The units of reordering are the phonological phrases.

Keywords:   free word order, quantifier scope, adverbial scope, right adjunction, phonological weight
