This week’s syntax-semantics meeting will take place Friday, February 10th at 12pm in room 117. Terrance will review some recent papers on fronting constructions for focus. 

Abstract: I discuss two broad approaches in the literature, one which argues that [focus] is a syntactically active feature and another which argues that there are no syntactically visible features for focus, and that ostensible focus-fronting should be reanalyzed.
