A smuggling approach to the passive in english

Christopher Collins

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    I propose a theory of the passive that combines aspects of the principles and parameters analysis (no specific rules, no downward movement) and Chomsky's (1957) Syntactic Structures analysis (the arguments in the passive are generated in the same positions as they are in the active).
