Anti-freezing and peeling
Bartosz Wiland
May 2018

This short paper shows that in certain grammatical environments acceptability of extractions from fronted constituents in Polish is at a similar level as acceptability of the variants involving pied-piping. This suggests that the Freezing Condition, a procedural ban on movement out of a moved constituent, is too coarse. Such a result opens up the possibility for the so-called 'peeling derivations' to be in principle legal.
