    Uniform Theta-role Assignment Hypothesis (UTAH) D-structure and Theta Theory. Let us consider the nature of D- and S-structure a little more closely. An obvious question is why it is that some elements start off in one position and then move to another. It must be the case therefore that these Θ-roles are given from the. Predicates and arguments. In the first case, Harold is the one doing the hitting and Henry is the one getting hit whereas in the second Sam does the seeing and Simon gets seen. However, these arguments play very different roles in the two events. With hit the one doing the hitting consciously performs an action and the one who gets hit is affected in some way by this.

      Case theory 1. *Cas e Theor y * Bi ndi ng Theor y P repared B y: Zhian Fadhil Asaad 2. Case Theory is one of the modules of G/B defining Case-assignment to DPs. Case Theory is in fact a central part of G/B theory which plays an important role in the analysis of certain movements. 3. Theta theory says that each verb comes predetermined with a certain number of theta roles, and each theta role must be assigned to one and only one NP. That's why "John loves" doesn't mean the same thing as "John loves himself", and why "*John arrived Mary" isn't acceptable ("arrived" doesn't have an object theta role).

    Theta Theory explores the lexicon as an interface in the strict sense, as facilitating the flow of information between cognition and the computational system of language. It argues for the traditional concept of a listed lexicon, where semantic roles are encoded as features of verbs, and against event decomposition.

Reduced theory of theta-role and case assignment and binding by Michael D. Moss Download PDF EPUB FB2

Up to now, generative linguistics has separated Binding, Case assignment and Theta-Role assignment into three separate sub-theories. Each of the sub-theories worked independently using its own set of rules and relations.

In this thesis, Michael Moss shows that all three sub-theories can be reduced to one, namely : D. Moss. Reduced theory of theta-role and case assignment and binding.

Theta theory as part of the Government and Binding Theory will be discussed in the following chapters.

First, the theory has to be localized in the field of grammar. Then, there follows a brief introduction to famous linguist Noam Chomsky`s current theory of principles and parameters/5(21).

This article presents a case study of the reduction of the Case Filter to a Visibility Principle governing theta role assignment (see Chomsky). The reduced, undifferentiated system, lacking the Case Filter, is shown to be unable to predict certain contrasts in degrees of (un)grammaticality.

A differentiated model incorporating the Case Filter encounters no such by: Theta-theory is theory about theta-roles.

The major principle of theta-theory is the theta-criterion. See also. Theta Criterion; Theta identification; Theta-absorption; Theta-government; Theta-grid; Theta-position; Theta-role; Theta-role assignment; Links. Utrecht Lexicon of Linguistics; References. Chomsky, N. Case, Scope, and Binding investigates the relation between syntax and semantics within a framework which combines the syntactic Government-Binding theory with a novel cross-linguistic theory of case and semantics.

It is argued that case assignment, agreement, syntactic binding relations, as well as the minimum scopes of operators, are all determined by the relations which hold at the level of. Greek will be explained on the basis of theta and case (i.e.

theta-role assignment and case absorption). First, I will present the framework that provides the means to explain the impersonal construction, namely the Theta System.

In section 3, I will elaborate on the analysis. iv 2 The theoretical framework: theta-roles, case. Back to our (2a), saw is known as the predicate because it expresses the state or process in which the arguments, i.e.

the sentence elements with thematic roles, are concerned.(This isn't a book on semantics, so we don't need the technical definitions.) Assigning θ-roles [].

When a predicate is introduced to our sentence, it assigns θ-roles to arguments. Theta-role assignment is assignment by a predicate of a theta-role to an argument. See also. Theta Criterion; Theta identification; Theta-absorption; Theta-government; Theta-grid; Theta-position; Theta-role; Theta-theory; Links.

Utrecht Lexicon of Linguistics. It's the Uniformity of Theta Assignment Hypothesis (UTAH): Uniform Theta-role Assignment Hypothesis (UTAH) If two arguments in have the same θ-role in S-structure, then they must have been generated in the same position at D-structure.

The wormhole bears the theta role path. Each end of the wormhole alternatively functions as a source or goal; simulatneously the other end has the oppose thata role.

For example, if end one is the goal, end two is the source, and vice versa. The worm just keeps moving. In the second case, there are two ends of the wormhole. Case, Passives, and Government (; Vergnaud said is the following (which he developed in the paper “On Binding it depends on our theory of theta-role assignment.

In the classic theory of theta-role assignment there is only one thing that we can do. Chapter Chapter –––– I II IV VVV Theta Theory and Case TheoryTheta Theory and Case TheoryTheta Theory and Case Theory assigned prior to movement.

An argument moves from θ-position to the position where it can get a case, in case it is in a position where there is no case assigner. For instance: 5a. John seems to be Size: KB. I put the book on the table. The subject "I" carries the theta role of Agent, because "I" is a subject capable of volition and is doing something.

The book gets the theta role of Theme, because it undergoes a change of state which involves either location or movement.

The study of green grass is popular among agrostologists. While you may be asked to write on a series of potential topics, there are similarities in all of the possible subjects. Case assignment in double object constructions 2. Unifícation in Case Theory Unifícation through PP-movement Consider this first proposal in sentences such as (3a-b) above.

From a semantic point of view, we can assume that there is no difference between them. Their D-structure is (4) (4) John gave (PP (P O)) a present to Mary. The theta-criterion (also named θ-criterion) is a constraint on x-bar theory that was first proposed by Noam Chomsky () as a rule within the system of principles of the government and binding theory, called theta-theory (θ-theory).As theta-theory is concerned with the distribution and assignment of theta-roles (a.k.a.

thematic roles), the theta-criterion describes the specific match between.In government and binding theory the theta criterion states that in any grammatical sentence each argument must be assigned to one theta role and each theta role must be realized by some argument.

Consequently in a grammatical sentence all predicates, meaning verbs, have a thematic structure.The theta criterion (or θ-criterion) is the formal device in Government and Binding Theory for enforcing the one to one match between arguments and theta roles.

This acts as a filter on the D-structure of the sentence.
