Abstract:

Since the advent of syntactic cartography, left sentence peripheries have
begun to take center stage in linguistic research. Following the lead of Rizzi
(1997), much work on left peripheries has been focused on Italian, whereas
other Romance languages have attracted somewhat less attention. This volume
offers a well-balanced set of articles investigating left sentence peripheries
in Spanish. Some articles explore the historical evolution of left dislocation
and fronting operations, while others seek to assess the extent – and the
limits – of variation found between different geographical varieties and
registers of the contemporary language. Moreover, the volume comprises several
case studies on the interfaces between syntax, semantics, and information
structure, and the implications of these for pragmatic interpretation and the
organization of discourse. Cross-linguistic and typological perspectives are
also provided in due course in order to position the analyses developed for
Spanish within a larger research context.
