Subjects, Expletives and the EPP by Peter Svenonius

Book Description

This collection of previously unpublished articles examines Noam Chomsky's Extended Projection Principle and its relationship to subjects and expletives (words like 'it' that stand for other words). Re-examining Chomsky's preposition 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 across languages. Presenting an international and highly respected group of contributors, this volume explores many of these questions in a variety of languages, including, Italian, Finnish, Icelandic, and Hungarian. Unusually cohesive, it promises to be an excellent addition to the Oxford Studies in Comparative Syntax series, and should be of interest to a considerable number of linguists of different persuasions.
