Broad Subjects in Arabic

  •  Mansour Qazan Alotaibi    


In contrast to the claim made in recent studies which proposes that the initial nominative NP in Arabic is not a left-dislocated topic but rather is a broad subject, this paper argues that Arabic has no Multiple Nominative Construction of the Japanese construction. The paper provides a number of arguments to support this position. It argues that the initial noun phrase is a left-dislocated topic, occupying A’-position.
