On the limits of across-the-board movement: Distributed extraction coordinations
Zeljko Boskovic
August 2021
 

The paper examines coordination constructions in which different elements move out of conjuncts of a single coordination, referred to as distributed extractions. A number of properties of such coordinations, and distributed extractions, are discussed, which includes showing that such constructions are also subject to the ATB requirement, which will shed light on the nature of the ATB phenomenon itself. It is also shown that there is a rather strong restriction on distributed extractions which confines such extractions to one context and completely excludes one type of movement from participating in such extractions.
