Correlates of object clauses in German and Dutch
This paper deals with usages of the German pronoun es (and its counterpart het in Dutch) as a correlate of extraposed object clauses. It is argued (i) that es is the head of an argument DP and takes the embedded clause as its complement; (ii) that there are two types of matrix predicates, one of them being compatible with correlate-es, the other one incompatible; and (iii) that correlate-es has to be distinguished from an anaphoric use of the pronoun es that is possible in constructions with both types of matrix predicates, but has different contextual requirements.
