In this paper, I will discuss some types of variation in wh-expressions asking for reasons such as
why, what…for and how come with special attention to their base-generated
positions in the framework of the cartography of syntactic structures. I will first discuss why and
what…for to illustrate variation in the base-generated position of wh-expressions asking for reasons. I will
next explore a new dimension in the cartography of syntactic structures by discussing some variation in the use of how
come and the complementizer that among speakers.
