31 If so, then we will have a typically weak Subjacency violation in a complex noun phrase of the second (noun-complement) type, along with an absolute prohibition against adjunct extraction (and, perhaps, complementizer deletion), by virtue of the ECP. Consider next the category of Wh-Island Condition violations, with such typical examples as (77a d): (77) a. whati did you wonder [CP[to whom]j John gave ti tj] b. [to whom]j did you wonder [whati John gave ti tj] c. whati did you wonder [CP[to whom]j to give ti tj] d.
Subjects of clauses are crucially different; by the Extended Projection Principle, they must be present at S-Structure. Hence, they must be subjected to the ECP (receive γ-marking) at S-Structure. The preceding discussion shows that a variety of consequences flow from the assumption that subjects of noun phrases can in principle be extracted by wh-movement but not over a wh-island. Unfortunately, the relevant facts do not appear to be very sharp. Further empirical evidence is required, but the logic of the situation is rather clear.
John is too stubborn [to ask anyone [who talked to]] Finally, let us consider rightward movement, which also appears to observe a locality condition akin to Subjacency, the "Right Roof Constraint" proposed by Ross (1967). Consider (87), where either t or t' appears but not both: (87) [NP many books [PP with [stories t]] t'] were sold [CP that I wanted to read] Here CP may have moved from t' but not from t. Movement from t would cross the barriers PP and (by inheritance) NP, yielding a Subjacency violation.
