Subjects, Expletives, and the Epp by Peter Svenonius (Editor) About this title: This collection of previously unpublished articles examines Noam Chomsky's Extended Projection Principle and its relationship to subjects and expletives (words like "it" that stand for other words). Subjects, Expletives, and the EPP.

Expletives’ status as filler does have exceptions. For instance, when a sentence’s subject is an infinitive phrase or a that clause, starting the sentence with the expletive it instead of the subject sounds more natural. Original sentence: To train at least four weeks for the event is crucial. (less natural). Discover Book Depository's huge selection of Peter Svenonius books online.

  Obligatory external subject raising proves that the EPP requirement in the Tense domain is definitely operative in Russian, so covert expletives are introduced in these cases. Turning to sentences with non-Nominative XPs in the left periphery, the paper demonstrates, contrary to several recent models, that such XPs never exhibit subject.   K TO 12 GRADE 4 LEARNER’S MATERIAL IN EPP (Q1-Q4) 1.

Subject raises to [Spec, Agr s] and object to [Spec, Agr o], driven by an EPP requirement of Agr. Nonetheless, I will show that a residue of the original asymmetry remains, as overt `object shift' in English is, contrary to the situation with subjects, optional.

In this introduction, I simply provide a sketch (in §) of the issues that set the scene for the papers in. The purpose of this work is to show that the EPP exists as an independent principle of grammar and to shed light on several closely related topics: the feature-composition of various expletives that satisfy the EPP as a function of the features of I that licenses them, the essence of nominative Case and the mechanism of its checking.

The expletive serves as the grammatical subject of the independent clause that it begins. In a clause like "it is raining" the referent of the pronoun "it" is not obvious, and is the subject of discussion and alternate theories among linguists.

This collection of previously unpublished articles examines Noam Chomsky's Extended Projection Principle and its relationship to subjects and expletives (works like it that stand for other words). Re-examining Chomsky's proposition that each clause must have a subject, these articles represent the current state of the debate, particularly with respect to the theory's universal applicability.

Subjects The subject occupies a precarious position in generative. 1. Introduction. Since Chomsky () proposed the Extended Projection Principle (henceforth, EPP), which requires that clauses have subjects, it has played significant roles in the development of phrase structure and in the consideration of triggering movement in the syntax of generative grammar.

One of the important questions regarding the characterization of the EPP is what .So expletives are there to make sure that the sentence will have a subject; that is, to make sure that TP will have a specifier.

In his book Lectures on Government and Binding, Noam Chomsky formulated the requirement that TP have a specifier as part of the Projection Principle ; he restated the Projection Principle as the Extended.
