Abstract

The relation between expletive there and its associate involves agreement, as suggested in Hazout 2004, and not θ-role assignment, as suggested in Williams 1994, 2006. This difference reflects radically different assumptions about the nature of the subject-predicate relation. The analysis in Hazout 2004 provides a superior account of the empirical facts and affords insights that are missed by the account in Williams 1994.
