Sample text

Recall how the weak PCC effect is then derived: When both pronouns are [+person], multiple Agree takes place resulting in a grammatical combination of two 1st and 2nd person pronouns. When the dative is 3rd person ([–person]) and the accusative is 1st /2nd person ([+person]) the condition on Multiple Agree (11) is violated, resulting in ungrammaticality. When the dative is 1st /2nd ([+person]) or 3rd ([–person]) and the accusative is 3rd person (lacks person specification entirely), the dative checks person and the accusative number, a Cyclic Agree process (the one that always takes place in strong PCC languages).

90) that the ACC >DAT order in French is either not derived by the syntax (but rather by the morphology), or, if it is derived by the syntax, it represents a case in which multiple movement does not result in tucking in. In the latter alternative, the dative clitic moves first, and the accusative, which moves second, targets a position above the dative. Exactly the same two alternatives can be extended to German. g. morphology, information structure), or, if it derives from syntax, it does not involve tucking in.

An obvious analysis would be to postulate a functional head W situated between the vP and the TP which hosts weak pronouns. Müller, alternatively, proposes that 24 Elena Anagnostopoulou Wackernagel movement is identical to scrambling. Both operations target (layered) specifiers of vP. The reason why weak pronouns must precede all other clause-internal material has to do with the trigger of Wackernagel movement, as opposed to the trigger of scrambling. Müller suggests that Wackernagel movement is not feature-driven and targets the left-edge of vP.
