clauses. Thus, it is not the next available position causing issues. Additionally,wh wordsin the sententialsubjects (8f~g) are moved outside of the TP, which violates the generalization made. The M Hypothesisoffers a valid explanation on whywh wordshave limited movement and cannot appear in certain placeswhile the N Hypothesis does not. These results suggest thatwh wordsmove, as they can be blocked,instead of teleporting—a suggestion that aligns with the structure proposed by (2b) and contradicts thestructure of (2a). This data thus favors the M Hypothesis because blocking movement can occur andrefutes the framework of the N Hypothesis.
5. Test 4: MultipleWh WordsPreviously, only onewh wordappeared in a sentence at a time, but grammatical sentences can beformed in the presence of multiplewh words. English allows for the coexistence of multiplewh words,although only in certain conditions. The sentences below show examples of multiplewh wordsoccurring:(9)a. Yuri picked a carrot in the garden.i. *Where what did Yuri pick?b. Where did Yuri pick a carrot?j. *Who where picked in the garden?c. What did Yuri pick in the garden?k. Who picked what where?d. Who picked a carrot in the garden?l. Where did who pick what?e. Who picked a carrot where?m. *What who picked where?f. Who picked what in the garden?n. *Who where picked what?g. What did Yuri pick where?o. *What where who picked?h. Where did Yuri pick the what?The sentences in (9a~o) show the process of replacing elements in a sentence withwh words. (9a)shows the base sentence which is grammatical because no replacements have been performed on it.(9b~d) illustrates replacing a single element with awh wordwhich results in grammatical sentences asdiscussed in Test 1 - Complements of Verbs. Beyond single replacement, sentences (9e~n) showreplacement of up to threewh words. In (9e~j), notice that twowh wordsare being replaced. In (9e~h),grammatical sentences are present and eachwh wordis in their own respective place. Even in (9g~h)where thewh wordsmove, grammaticality is retained since it respects the positions of previouswh words.However, as seen in (9i~j), ungrammaticality can arise when the positions ofwh wordsare not respected.In (9i), “where” and “what” are competing for the same CP specifier causing ungrammaticality; a similarsituation occurs in (9j) with “who” and “where.” Continuing into three word replacement, observe that in(9k) it is possible to replace all elements in a sentence like “Yuri,” “a carrot” and “the garden” with
