The suggestions are all according to the automated version or compilation of a grammar instead of a amendment of the processing set of rules used. As such they permit the grammar author to summary over information of grammar processing and in lots of circumstances allow extra effective processing.

Thus, the ‘‘said about’’ test embraces constituents that are not dislocated and does not reach several types of examples of dislocates. 5 Reinhart (1981: 73–8). 6 Moreover, as has often been pointed out, the term ‘‘old information’’ is misleading, because a DP is not ‘‘information’’, a term that is more appropriate to use for propositions—hence my scary quotes.

Chapter 6 returns to the syntax of dislocations, seeking to contribute to some recent debates on their derivation. I start by arguing that CLLD and CLRD are the output of movement and not base-generated where they surface. Then I use sub-extraction again to argue against the Attract/Piedpipe analysis of movement in Chomsky (1995, 2000) as well as against the criterion approach of Rizzi (1996). Finally, I present arguments against alternative analyses of CLRD that merge it in a very high position (Frascarelli 2000; Samek-Lodovici 2006) or a very low position (Cardinaletti 2002).
