This paper provides evidence for phonology-free syntax, suggesting that word order effects related to discourse and prososdy can be explained under a multiple output syntax with filters at the interface. Empirical argumentation comes from the following domains: DP-internal focus, relative order between adverbs and direct objects, verb focalization, focus in binding contexts, acquisition of focus and parenthetical insertion.
