While both clause types involve operator movement, they differ crucially regarding the information-structural status of the operator: in interrogatives, the operator can be associated with discourse-new information, while in relative clauses the operator is discourse-old and can be potentially left out. This asymmetry regarding information-structural properties has further important consequences. First, doubling patterns involving an overt operator and an overt complementiser emerge across West Germanic languages in embedded questions but not in relative clauses. Second, the reanalysis of the operator into a complementiser is attested in relative clauses but not in embedded interrogatives.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Bacskai-Atkari, Julia</dc:contributor> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/45"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:title>Discourse-driven asymmetries between embedded interrogatives and relative clauses in West Germanic</dcterms:title> <dc:creator>Bacskai-Atkari, Julia</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
