Abstract

An economical account of Focus in the right periphery in Romance languages can be offered if rightward movement is allowed in the PF component. In this paper I redefine p(rosodic)-movement as a postsyntactic phenomenon that does not care about directionality (cf.Erteschik-Shir and Strahov 2000), thus challenging accepted wisdom
(Zubizarreta 1998).
