Transparent free relatives
two challenges for the grafting approach
This chapter argues for the view that Standard Free Relatives and Transparent Free Relatives have exactly the same bi-dimensional configurational structures, and against the view that they have distinct multi-dimensional structures, the transparent variety being externally headed by a token of a CP-internal post-copular phrase. It is argued that the proposed view yields superior analyses of the following facts: [i] Transparent Free Relatives are typically construed as existentially quantified, regardless of the quantificational force of the pivot, and [ii] certain case mismatch effects, predicted by the competing approach, fail to materialize in most idiolects, and are only weakly manifested in a small number of idiolects, in which they affect both Standard and Transparent Free Relatives, contrary to predictions.
