A more plausible conception, I think, is to take the ECP as a principle of UG, and derive the typological. The fact that the specifier of T 0 is subject both to the Extended Projection Principle (EPP) and to the Empty Category Principle (ECP) has remained an unexplained accident within Government-Binding Theory. I propose a principled account of this correlation. The EPP is a selectional requirement of functional heads (e.g., T, Top, C) that applies at PF—an instance of p-selection for an overt.

Empty category principle. Bloomington, Ind.: Reproduced by Indiana University Linguistics Club Publications, (OCoLC) Document Type: Book: All Authors /. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia In linguistics, the empty category principle (ECP) was proposed in Noam Chomsky 's syntactic framework of government and binding theory.
The ECP is supposed to be a universal syntactic constraint that requires certain types of empty categories, namely traces, to be properly governed. As we shall see, empty categories play a central role in the theory of grammar which we are outlining here.
We begin by looking at clauses which might be argued to contain an empty subject. In this connection, compare the structure of the bracketed infinitive clauses in the (a) and (b) examples below: (1) (a) We would like [you to stay].

COMPLEMENTIZERS AND THE EMPTY CATEGORY PRINCIPLE rIM STOWELL M.I.T. Introduction Chomsky () introduces the Empty Category Principle (hence forth ECP), providing a unified account of a number of superficially disparate phenomena.
The paradigm case is. Empty Category Principle (ECP) Traces must be properly governed α properly governs β iff (i) α governs β and α is a lexical head or (ii) α antecedent-governs β. α antecedent-governs β iff (i) α binds β (ii) no more than one bounding node dominates β but not α.

In linguistics, an empty category is an element in the study of syntax that does not have any phonological content and is therefore unpronounced.
Empty categories may also be referred to as covert categories, in contrast to overt categories which are pronounced. When representing empty categories in tree structures, linguists use a null symbol to depict the idea that there is a mental category.

Empty Category Principle (brief: ECP) is a principle which requires that empty categories be properly is assumed that the ECP does not hold of all empty categories: it holds for A- and A'-bound traces (i.e. NP-traces and variables), but not for pronominal empty categories like pro and PRO.
Well-known examples of ECP-violations are extractions of an adjunct out of an island, as in. Thirdly, distribution of the empty category in a movement chain is subject to the Empty Category Principle (ECP), as we shall see in Chapter 6, but not the distribution of the empty category under control.
Both the pronominal and the non-pronominal ECs can be further divided. However, work on the movement of lexical elements, heads, has flourished only in recent years, stimulated originally by Chomsky's Empty Category Principle, and later by the work of Travis, Baker.
The book is also able to dispense with the Empty Category Principle which has been a major focus within G-B theory. It proposes instead a structural unification of the notions of pronouns, empty categories, and anaphors which leads to new insights in areas never treated in a coherent way before.

An important principle governing the distribution of the non-pronominal empty categories and formulated variously over the past several years is known as the Empty Category Principle (here from Rizzi, ): A non-pronominal empty category must be properly governed.
Proper government can be satisfied either by lexical or antecedent government. and. Despite the fact that Chomsky () himself made Empty Category Principle as a redundant tool, the editors and authors of this book dared to venture into the domain of such silenceme. decision reaction time or the fine points of the Empty Category Principle, I hope to convey the grand intellectual excitement that launched the modern study of language several decades ago.
For my professional colleagues, scattered across so many disciplines and studying so many seemingly unrelated topics, I hope to offer a.
Therefore, Empty Category Principle is the core standard that defines the existence of empty categories. InAndrew Radford gave the definition of Empty Category as follows: Empty Category refers to an element that lacks of phonological input and establishes a relationship to an antecedent.the Empty Category Principle (ECP).
As we will see, the reduction of the constraints on wh- movement to more general principles has proven a considerable challenge to syntactic theory, and one that persists to the present day.
In particular, no satisfactory overarching framework has yet. The book is also able to dispense with the Empty Category Principle which has been a major focus within G-B theory. It proposes instead a structural unification of the notions of pronouns, empty categories, and anaphors which leads to new insights in areas never treated in .
