Description

De-Clauses are conditional infinitive constructions found in certain varieties of Spanish (e.g. De coger un avión mañana, vamos a llegar a la boda), which challenge traditional approaches toward Case-assignment and subject movement. This paper takes a minimalist approach towards uncovering the motivations behind the peculiarities of these constructions.
