Dislocazioni a sinistra e clitici di ripresa obbligatori
AbstractThe paper deals with Clitic Left Dislocations in some Italo-Romance varieties. While in standard Italian only object DPs, if dislocated, require resumptive clitics, in the varieties taken into account, clitic resumption is obligatory also with PPs. This asymmetry will be explained claiming that Left Dislocations with or without clitics correspond to different structures, involving different projections in the CP layer. The paper deals also with some examples of obligatory clitic resumption in Italian, which will be analyzed in terms of CP reduction (Haegeman ).
