Title: The CP of clefts

Abstract: I have argued in recent work (Belletti 2008) that the CP of cleft sentences has some peculiar properties, the crucial ones being the following two: i. it is a reduced CP; ii. the reduced CP may or may not be endowed with an EPP feature. In the pages that follow I would like to review the main arguments for i.-ii. in light of the different kinds of focalization that the two CP structures lead to in clefts. The main emphasis of the discussion here will be on the particular shape of the articulated CP projection in clefts. Throughout I will limit my attention to structures where the clefted constituent is a DP (or a PP), either a subject or a direct /indirect object.
