3). However, the grammaticality contrast between these two cases still stands. 13 The word to has a number of distinct functions, some of which are listed by Citko (2008, 263, footnote 3). Polish Inverse Copular Sentences 45 only the preverbal DP in the canonical clause can be focused in the to-cleft, but not a pre-verbal DP in a clause with the inverted order. Secondly, the inverted DP seems to be non-referential as it resists modification by intensive reflexives (cf. Rothstein 2001, 253), as can be seen in (26) and (27).

The contrast between these two cases allows us to conclude that the preverbal DP in inverted copular sentences can be regarded as a predicate, not as an argument. Let us now consider the question of whether Polish inverse copular sentences can be treated as a subtype of equative sentences, the way it has been argued by Błaszczak & Geist (2000; 2001). According to Higgins (1979), equatives signal identity between the two DPs found on both sides of the copula verb. In Polish, equatives can be only represented by to być clauses, and never by być clauses (cf.

If, on the other hand, the inverted DP precedes the extracted element, as in (53), the whole structure is fully licit. The ungrammaticality of (52) cannot be accounted for by appealing to the fact that extraction from within a subject is banned, as in Polish extraction of this kind leads only to mild degradation (cf. Willim 1989, 111), as can be seen in (54). O czymi film ti tak cię zdenerwował? ’ Consequently, just like in (45) the ungrammaticality of (52) results from locality violation, as the focused item moves across the topic.
