Briefly explain for all the noun phrases in (2a), (2b) and (2c) how they get their theta-role and how case assignment works. What is the role of movement here? The discussion should take place under each relevant tree.

(1) Draw trees for the following examples. (Examples (a) and (c) are French.)

 

a.         Muriel lit         toujours           les journaux.    ‘Muriel always reads the papers.’

            M.        reads   always             the papers

 

            b.         Should the papers really print the allegations?

 

            c.         Voit     il          vraiment          le chat?                        ‘Does he really see the cat?’

                        sees      he        really               the cat

 

 

(2) Draw trees for the following examples.

 

            a.         Strange claims have been made in the meeting.

 

            b.         The proposal seemed to fool the voters.

 

            c.         The files seem to have been lost.

 

 

(3) Briefly explain for all the noun phrases in (2a), (2b) and (2c) how they get their theta-role and how case assignment works. What is the role of movement here?  The discussion should take place under each relevant tree.

 

(4) Draw trees for the sentences in (1) below.

 

For all verbs (not auxiliaries) state what theta-roles they assign. (That should help with the trees.)

For example: ‘He must like ice cream’: like assigns a subject theta role to he and an object theta role to ice cream.

 

In all trees indicate theta role assignment with arrows. Also, indicate movement with arrows. (Using different colours for movement and theta role assignment may be a good idea.) Where something moves to get Case, also indicate that (e.g. write “for Case” under the movement arrow).

 

Note: Several types of movement may happen in one structure.

 

 (1)       a.         Frank tried to buy [N ice cream].

            b.         Frank is likely to order an ice cream.

            c.         Where should Frank buy the ice cream from?

            d.         What should have been bought?

           

(5) Explain the role of PRO in control structures and the role of pro in null subject languages. Give examples. Your answer should not exceed 400 words.

I have tried other sites for assignment help but the result that Insta Research has produced outweighs others. Since I am weak at writing and shaping the data logically, I am glad I took help from this site. Thanks to my writer for such a great quality of the assignment in Business.
