Abstract
This book examines the properties of parasitic gaps and tough constructions in English and Spanish, focusing on the clause-boundedness characteristics of both constructions in the latter language and the difference between finiteness in the clause where the parasitic gap can appear in both languages. Solutions within the Principles and Parameters framework are provided for these problems not dealt with until now.
