Some Constraints on Topicalization.
Papers in Japanese Linguistics, v1 n1 p74-88 Jun 1972
This paper explains some properties and restrictions involved in phenomena of topicalization in Japanese. The first section reviews certain properties involved in simplex topical sentences; the second section reveals certain constraints on topicalization involved in complex sentences. Section Three pursues one consequence suggested by those constraints, namely, the existence of a rule of complement subject-raising in Japanese. (Author)
