wh-constructions. through reconsidering middle features of the wh-movement operation
first systematically mentioned by means of Chomsky from the Minimalist standpoint, this
quantity contributes to the additional improvement of the idea of wh-movement and to
the final thought of movement.Contributors:Brian Agbayani, Lisa Lai-Shen Cheng,
