‘Again’ separation in Italian
Keywords:again, restructuring verb, adverb movement, Coordinate Structure Constraint, Relativized Minimality, Italian
AbstractIn Italian, ri- ‘again’ can be separated from the constituent it is semantically attached to and challenges the structural account for the ambiguity of ‘again’-type elements. To address this issue, this paper proposes a solution through aspectual agreement and suggests a movement and reconstruction analysis for the separation effect of ri-. It also provides supporting evidence for this analysis through Coordinate Structure Constraint and Relativized Minimality.
