Adverbial Clauses, major Clause Phenomena, and Composition of the Left outer edge uses the cartographic thought to envision the left outer edge of the English clause and examine it to the left-peripheral buildings of different languages. Liliane Haegeman argues that the distinct floor features of those languages (primarily English and Romance, but additionally Gungbe, Hungarian, Hebrew, Dutch, and others) should be defined through common constraints, and that an analogous constructions practice around the languages. Haegeman makes a speciality of major clause transformations--movement operations that could simply happen in major clauses.

(41a) illustrates what would be multiple topics; (41b) illustrates the sequence focus–topic; (41c–e) illustrate the sequence wh-phrase– topic (41c) illustrates an embedded pattern, and (41d) and (41e) illustrate root patterns, with two variants.
