Title: A note on 'restructuring' and quantifier climbing in French
Authors: Cinque, Guglielmo
Keywords: French

Issue Date: 2002

Abstract: Although Modern French was originally taken to lack the 'restructur-ing' phenomenon altogether, four different 'restructuring' effects have more recently been claimed to exist in the language: 'en' and 'y' climbing, quantifier climbing, adverb climbing, and long movement in 'easy-to-please' constructions. Evidence discussed in this article shows that only 'en' and 'y' climbing and long movement in 'easy-to-please' constructions are bona fide instances of 'restructuring' in French.
