Abstract

This book is dedicated to two major issues: topicality and exceptional wide scope, which are not as unrelated as one might assume. In this introduction, I will acquaint the reader with the notions that will be needed for the discussions in subsequent chapters and briefly lay out the proposal I wish to make with this work. I will start with a short introduction to information structure, which is necessary to get a picture of the different notions of topicality, and then set the stage for a new approach to exceptional wide scope phenomena.
