LECTURE – Nov. 10
Heads move to heads; specifiers and complements move to specifiers
Finite vs. non-finite
-if T has tense (ie. has [+ or – pst] – FINITE
-NON-FINITE: when tense cannot be shown under T, like when it isto”
5– violates theta criterion since John is in the higher clause but the action he’s
doing is in the lower clause
6 – John is not likely, but the idea that he’s dancing is likely
8 – John moves to the TP specifier of embedded clause BECAUSE IT SATISFIES THE
EXTENDED PROJECTION PRINCIPLE
9 – the DP movement in prev slide is called RAISING
11 – in the passivized version, the letter is the THEME, therefore it is the complement of
the verb – should not be in AGENT position
-sometimes the verb indicates passive: taken, broken
14 – by preposition gives agent theta role to courier
15 – questions, such as why when expletive pronouns can only be used in certain
situations
restriction on which DP to raise to satisfy EPP
17 – Bill cannot be moved to highest DP
Why is this a problem for the theory so far? That we can move John to the highest DP but
not Bill? – potential EXAM question
19 – nominative and accusative occur in different positions
-overtly occur in pronouns in English
onominative (SUBJECT pronouns)
oaccusative (OBJECT pronouns, and a couple of other things)
20 – case is marked on both subjects and objects in Japanese, Korean, African languages,
Latin
22 – case is always assigned in DPs, regardless of whether it is seen or not
24 – using the Case Filter and the following two assumptions, be able to explain the
earlier ungrammatical sentences
