Y .. J... J.. X ... 3* 36 CHAPTER I Horvath's approach provides no principled way in which interpretation b. of (46) can be excluded. e. the lack of the subject-object asymmetries it predicts, will be discussed in subsequent chapters. The complete parallelism of extraction from subject and object positions will be shown in Chapter 3. , while the lack of Weak Crossover phenomena will be discussed in Chapter 5. 3. The Partially Non-configurational Approach The most successful attempt-in my opinion- to derive the structure and word order of the Hungarian sentence has been Brassai's forgotten theory (cf.
Azota) sok viz lefolyt a Dunan. since-it much water flowed the Danube-on (Since that) much water has flown down the Danube. e. Isten orizzen (tole)! God save-me from-it God save me (from it). e. g. (37) a. (Neki) leesett to-him fell (His) jaw fell. az alla. the jaw-his b. (Neki) bekotottek a fejet. to-her tied-up the head-her-acc (Her) head has been tied up with a kerchief ['she has got married']. c. (Neki) kinyilik a bicska a zsebeben. to-him opens the pocket-knife the pocket-his-in The pocket-knife opens in (his) pocket ['he gets angry'].
Janosti S ot; S Maria S hivta meg ej In Hungarian, however, structures containing a left dislocated NP are not ungrammatical when embedded in a that-clause either-they merely give the impression of casual speech: (28) Azt mondjak, hogy Janost, ot Maria hivta meg. it-ace say-they that John-ace him Mary invited (perf) It is said that, as for John, he was invited by Mary. In such embedded sentences the left dislocated NP, which is outside S, follows the complementizer. This is as expected if we assume structure (26a), and claim that bogy is a subordinating operator which normally takes an S operand, but marginally it can also operate upon an ~.
