Analysis of Information Structure
My work in this area has challenged the consensus that Italian contrastive foci are fronted at the left-periphery of Italian clauses. My research shows that foci are instead focused in-situ except when generated within a larger constituent targeted by right dislocation, in which case they move leftward as much as necessary to evacuate the targeted constituent. I have recently completed a monograph on this topic entitled "The Interaction of Focus and Givenness".
