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This collection of previously unpublished articles examines Noam Chomsky's "Extended Projection Principle" and its relationship to subjects and expletives (words like "it" that stand for other words).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