dc.description.abstractThis thesis investigates the subject position in German and compares this to the English “Fixed” Spec TP allocation for the subject. It will be shown that the subject in German does not have a fixed position in the sentence structure and that Spec TP is always empty in German. The questions that this raises in regards to the EPP feature and nominative case assignment are addressed, and lastly the possibility of German as a TP-less language is discussed. In this thesis, a more cartographic approach in line with X-bar Theory is assumed, but minimalist approaches will also be touched on.
