The project investigates the role of focus and givenness in extraction out of island configurations (ICs) and other complex constructions (CCs), which are frequently judged to be marked or ungrammatical (Freezing Effect). In project phases I and II, the project investigated extraction from focus constructions and identified factors that play a role in resistance to extraction, and information-structurally (InfS) controlled contexts that improve these constructions. Based on these results, we now extend its empirical coverage to ICs and CCs and investigate the InfS conditions on extraction and the degree of context adaptivity determined by the specific weight of construction-specific and InfS complexity factors.
