This chapter argues that constructions that apparently involve hyper‐raising with resumption in Brazilian Portuguese actually result from A‐movement of an embedded topic. This chapter accounts for the mixed A/A′‐properties of the matrix subject of these constructions and provides independent evidence for Chomksy's (2001) version of the Phase Impenetrability Condition.

Keywords:   hyper‐raising, topics, A‐movement, Phase Impenetrability Condition, Brazilian Portuguese
