On the nature of CNPC effects in Korean scrambling constructions

There are two main approaches to the nature of island effects: syntactic and functional approaches. The former attributes the nature of island effects to the violation of syntactic constraints, whereas the latter claims that island effects arise due to non-syntactic factors such as processing difficulty and semantic/pragmatic infelicity. This paper aims to investigate the nature of Complex NP Constraint (CNPC) effects in Korean scrambling constructions based on two acceptability judgment experiments. The first experiment examines the role of three functional factors, namely plausibility, definiteness, and coherence, which have been claimed to have significant effects on island phenomena by previous studies. The second experiment, which is based on a factorial definition of island effects, tries to figure out whether functionally felicitous CNPC-violating scrambling constructions show island effects. The results of the two experiments strongly support the view that the nature of CNPC effects in Korean scrambling constructions is functional, not syntactic.
