Title: Relativas livres e interrogativas parciais: paralelos e diferenças
Issue Date: 2018-09
Abstract: In this paper we analyse parallelisms and differences between free relatives, true embedded wh interrogatives,and improper embedded wh interrogatives. While free relatives are DPs which contain a CP, embedded whinterrogatives, both true and improper interrogatives, are CPs. In the last years and in the framework of theMinimalist Program, this different categorial nature has been deduced from formal labelling conditions,mainly related to the nature of head or maximal projection of the moved wh constituent. In this paper, whilenot rejecting the importance of the difference between head and maximal projection of the wh constituent, weshow that the DP or CP nature of the embedded constituent and its [+int] or [+decl] status must be sanctionedby the selection requirements of the matrix predicate.
