Scrambling, Remnant Movement, and Restructuring in West Germanic

Roland Hinterholzl

Oxford Studies in Comparative Syntax

In this book, Hinterhölzl provides a comprehensive study of three salient phenomena of West Germaic, namely scrambling, remnant movement and restructuring, and discusses their interrelatedness. In particular, restructuring is shown to break down into remnant movement of the major phases of the infinitival clause, accounting for the formation of verb clusters and the transparency of restructuring infinitives.
