This collection of papers is devoted to the syntactic analysis of modification and extraction strategies in Austronesian languages. Objects of study are the categorial and phrase structural status and scopal behavior of sentence-level adverbs, ordering constraints on adjectival modifiers, and the nature of unbounded dependencies in interaction with Philippine-type voice systems. Clinque's universal ordering hypothesis for adverbs and current work on remnant movement serve as theoretical points of reference.
