Figure B.1 shows a metarule for wh-movement of the subject. Among
the trees to which it have been applied are the basic trees of intransitive,
transitive and ditransitive families (including prepositional complements),
passive trees of the same families, and ergative.
Metarule for wh-movement of subject
Figure B.2 shows a metarule for wh-movement of an NP in object
the trees to which it have been applied are the basic and passive trees of
transitive and ditransitive families.
Metarule for wh-movement of object
Figure B.3 shows a metarule for general wh-movement of an NP.
It can be applied to
generate trees with either subject or object NP moved. We show in
Figure B.4, the basic tree for the family Tnx0Vnx1Pnx2 and the tree
wh-trees generated by the application of the rule.
