Extraposition: a new perspective*

Jeanne Maartens


The ultimate aim of this working paper is to determine the implications of Extra/Intrapositionl) phenomena2) in Afrikaans for the Revised Extended Standard Theory (REST). In order to achieve this aim, an attempt is made to construct a descriptively adequate grammar of the phenomena in question within the framework of the REST. The version of the REST referred to here is outlined in Chomsky and Lasnik (1977), Chomsky (unpublished) and Chomsky (1978). Sinclair (1978) provides a systematic exposition of this theory.
