Features, Categories, and the Syntax of A-Positions investigates
various aspects of the distribution of nominal arguments, and in
particular the cross -linguistic variation that can be found among the
Germanic languages in this domain of the syntax. The empirical topics
that are discussed include variable vs. fixed argument order, the
distribution of subjects with respect to adjuncts, expletive
constructions, and oblique subjecthood. These and many other
phenomena are analyzed within a theoretical framework which is based
on the Minimalist Program. The book argues that the traditional
theoretical devices accounting for the distribution of arguments in
generative syntax (abstract Case, the Extended Projection Principle)
should be eliminated from the grammar and that their apparent effects
can be derived from the feature specifications of syntactic
categories. Furthermore, it is shown that several aspects of the
cross-linguistic variation found in the syntax of arguments can be
related to variation in the domain of inflectional morphology.
