Review quote

From the reviews:


"The analysis of the relevance Focus and Topic constructions from both the prosodic and syntactic perspective makes an innovative contribution to the literature on the interface between syntax and phonology, and, specifically, to the literature on phrasing. Moreover, it constitutes a significant addition to the study of Italian syntax and phonology."
