I describe a very simple HPSG analysis for partial verb phrase fronting. I will ar- gue that the presented account is more adequate than others made during the past years because it allows the descrip- tion of constituents in fronted positions with their modifier remaining in the non- fronted part of the sentence. A problem with ill-formed signs that are admitted by all HPSG accounts for par- tial verb phrase fronting known so far will be explained and a solution will be suggested that uses the difference be- tween combinatoric relations of signs and their representation in word order do- mains.
