This work investigates the syntax of the higher portion of the functional structure of the clause using comparative data from hundreds of Northern Italian dialects. The area contains dialects that are different in most ways yet homogenous syntactically, making it an ideal ground for analyzing micro-variations in syntax. The book sheds new light on debated problems such as subject-clitic inversion, verb movement and subject positions, and the structure of the higher functional phrases.

This book substantially contributes to our knowledge of the way functional projections operate in the higher part of the clause, by bringing to the attention of scholars new phenomena and language varieties, as well as many valuable insights * Journal of Linguistics, Vol.37 *
