Extreme Locality in Madurese Wh-Questions

This article investigates the apparently three types of wh-questions in Madurese—wh in situ, overt wh-movement, and partial wh-movement—and argues that the three are actually instantiations of a single wh-in-situ strategy and that the relation between the wh-element and its operator obeys extreme locality. An analysis is proposed in which overt long distance and partial wh-movement are actually reflexes of A-movement to subject position in a proleptic-object construction. Madurese wh-phenomena are situated in term of Cole and Hermon's (1998) typology of wh-movement. It is further suggested here that movement across clause boundaries is illicit in Madurese.
