Languages feature sentences that implement rather similar meanings through varied word orders. As the resulting representations are related, syntactic theory assumed the existence of a basic word-order, from which others are derived. Movement, an operation of central syntactic significance is assumed in order to capture such regularities (1, 2). Typically, the moved element ("filler") precedes the position from which it is extracted in the base ("gap"). In addition to standard linguistic… Expand
