Abstract

This article reviews some of the many and varied arguments for the 'split-vP' syntactic architecture that has taken over most of the functions of theta theory in the old Government and Binding framework, and considers how it can account for the central facts of argument structure and argument structure-changing operations. It then reviews the framework-wide implications of the new approach, which are considerable.
