Abstract:

Within the framework of Chomsky's Principles and Parameters Theory and 
the Minimalist Program, this work presents a detailed discussion of the 
different types of wh-question formation and relativization strategies in Cape 
Verdean Creole (Santiago variety), especially focusing on wh-movement of 
PPs. The book explores the Copy Theory of Movement, discussing a 
defective copy construction involving wh-movement of PPs which poses 
interesting theoretical questions as to how the defective copy is to be 
generated and form a chain with the relevant displaced wh-constituent. It is 
also shown that the defective copy strategy ([wh [PL] … 'el' [3SG]]) is 
distinct from resumption ([wh [PL] … 'es' [3PL]]) due to some properties of 
PPs in Cape Verdean Creole and to the nature of the pronominal element that 
occurs at the foot of the wh-chain. This book relates well with those on Cape 
Verdean Creole and highlights the need to look more closely at deeper 
syntactic issues in more creole languages, inspiring further comparative work 
amongst creole linguists.
