5.3. Syntactic restrictions on R-extraction

Section 5.2 has discussed the lexical restrictions on the formation of pronominal PPs. The ability to form a pronominal PP is not sufficient, however, to allow R-extraction; additional syntactic conditions must be met in order to license preposition stranding. These conditions will be discussed in this section.
