The Sound Patterns of Syntax

João Costa

Oxford University Press

This paper provides evidence for phonology‐free syntax, suggesting that word order effects related to discourse and prososdy can be explained under a multiple output syntax with filters at the interface. Empirical argumentation comes from the following domains: DP‐internal focus, relative order between adverbs and direct objects, verb focalization, focus in binding contexts, acquisition of focus and parenthetical insertion.

Keywords:   focus, prosody, European Portuguese, word order, output
