Remarks on Grammatical Weight.
Wasow, Thomas
Language Variation and Change, v9 n1 p81-105 1997
Discusses "end-weight," long, complex phrases that tend to come at the end of clauses. Corpus data on heavy noun phrase shift, the dative alternation, and particle movement indicate that there are several structural measures of weight highly correlated with constituent ordering.
