Partial wh-movement in the history of Scandinavian.

Håkansson, David LU (2004) In Working Papers in Scandinavian Syntax
Abstract
Partial wh-movement does not exist in the modern Scandinavian languages. It is however found in Old West Scandinavian texts, but not in Old East Scandinavian texts. In this article it is argued that there is a correspondence between attested partial wh-movement and the possibility of deleting the complementizer corresponding to English that. Although complementizer deletion is possible in all modern Scandinavian languages only Old East Scandinavian seemed to allow this.
