Contemporary linguistics, Vol.41-42 No.1-2 June 1996. -

Generative syntacticians are interested in whether, and to what extent, a given language

can move interrogative and relative elements Wh-elements from a subordinate clause to a

position in a main clause. Languages differ greatly in the Wh-extractions they allow. This

article tests examples of this sort on Croatian material, but at the same time points out

some difficulties which arise in testing them, because Croatian as well as Bosnian and Serbian

offers two other means for formulating equivalent content. The paper concludes with

a tribute to Professor Leonardo Spalatin, late of the Department of English of Zagreb University,

in the context of some speculations about ease of processing of complex syntactic

structures.
