Focus & Clause Structuration in the Minimalist Program

Abstract : This article explores the possibility that the derivation of focus from syntax to LF can be implemented in a direct and transparent way. Assuming the principles of Bare Phrase Structure, I develop a derivational construal of the focus structure and provide a syntax of focus in Basque combining it with an eventish logical form whereby the focus falls in the scope of a binary existential quantifier (cf. Herburger (2000)). Adopting recent ideas of Hornstein & Uriagereka (2002), this
transparent interface is accomplished by allowing binary quantifiers to reproject at LF to get their nuclear scope.
