The thetas don’t lie
December 6, 2006
Shakira happened to be the subject of most of our examples when discussing A-movement.
…”a position that is not a thematically marked position”…I’m *really* understanding this stuff…
That seems more like it.
She IS??? I thought we’d only have to listen to her for like the next 3 years, maybe 4 and maybe again in 2017 for the inevitable Comeback Attempt, or something.
Oh, and I thought it was just because she felt the beat rumbling through her bones.
Yyyyeah, we got that already.
I don’t want to know what else goes on up there.
…four days later…
Annnd she’s finally got her theta-role assignment and her Case. Relief at last.
