Luigi Rizzi

Luigi Rizzi is mainly interested in formal syntactic theories.  The notion of Relativized Minimality that he proposed in 1990 is hailed as a milestone for the issue of syntactic locality.  He also made great contributions to how the left periphery of a sentence, i.e., CP, could be further decomposed into more functional phrases, including ForceP, TopicP, and FocusP.
