Applicatives is worried with the syntax of structures that comprise arguments that go beyond the normal subject-object characterization, and the way the syntax of such structures yields the interpretive results that prior study has pointed out. on the empirical point this quantity treatments the inadequacies and obstacles of earlier debts by means of featuring a extra nuanced view of the entire components that input into the syntax and semantics of applicatives. on the theoretical point, this publication deals empirical arguments for varied theoretical innovations at present entertained within the minimalist software, between which move into theta-position, a number of agree, anti-locality, and a really derivational view on successive cyclic stream.

B. c. d. e. GEN ‘They surrendered to avoid a long war’ Jie pasidavė [? DAT to-avoid (Franks and Lavine to appear) In (22) vengti ‘avoid’ governs the lexical case GEN. When such verbs appear as infinitives, the lexical case and word order are retained (22b); the same holds even in the purpose infinitive clause (22c-e), unlike (21b), where (structural) accusative case is replaced by dative in the purpose infinitive. This phenomenon, often referred to as “case preservation”, is typically handled by stipulating that lexical case is required for proper semantic interpretation, whereas structural case, although canonically making a particular grammatical function, is not.
But, as pointed out in Boeckx (2004, to appear) and Boeckx and Grohmann (to appear), once notions like L-marking are revived, phases lose much of their minimalist appeal. , featural considerations such as case, different flavors of C, etc. What is needed to evaluate locality of an element in a phase is purely based on where it sits in the given phase: a complement of a phase that is impenetrable from outside, a specifier position of a phase that renders an element free to move out of the phase, etc.

I tentatively assume that this morphological difference is what allows the child to figure out the ban on multiple specifiers in locative applicatives.
