Submitter Email:  click here to access email

Query:   What are weak crossover and strong crossover effects? How are they
related to syntactic movements in language? I specifically want to
know how weak crossover effects are related to the nature of
"scrambling".I have checked some sources but I have not been able to
find the proper answer.

Thank you, M.Rasekh
