Abstract

Only in CLLD does the dislocated DP perform the discourse function [Topic] partitioning the utterance into [Topic] + [Comment]; cliticless non-focal dislocated DPs are solely fronted [Ground] information that partition the utterance into [Ground] + [New]. In other words, the two constructions correspond to two different information packaging strategies and grammaticalise two distinct Information Structure interface rules.
