Cumulative rightward processes
Extraposition and right node raising (RNR) can interact in two ways: from a descriptive point of view, the result of each can be used as input for the other. Embedding of the former process or configuration inside the latter explains apparent violations of the right periphery condition associated with RNR. The reverse leads to right-peripheral material that is distributively linked to conjoined or insubordinated parts within the relevant clause. We argue for a multidominance approach to RNR and a specifying coordination approach to extraposition, and we show that these theories can be combined in the way empirically required. We also indicate what this amounts to in a bottom-up derivation. Data are drawn from Dutch primarily, with some confirmation from English and German.
