Order and structure in syntax II Subjecthood and argument structure

Michelle Sheehan; Laura R. Bailey

This book reconsiders the role of order and structure in syntax, focusing on fundamental
issues such as word order and grammatical functions. The papers in the collection all
address the issue of subjecthood and argument structure in some way, and examine how
certain subject properties vary across languages: expression of subjects, expletive subjects,
quirky and locative subjects. All of the papers address in some way the tension between
modelling what can vary across languages whilst improving our understanding of what
might be universal to human language.
