EPP and ECP revisited
The role of labeling
In the GB framework, EPP and ECP are stated as two independent principles, but they both attribute a special status to the subject position of clauses: subjects are obligatory, and they are not possible extraction sites (unless special conditions are met). This common core suggests the possibility of establishing a closer link between the two properties (Chomsky 2015, Rizzi 2015b). In this paper I would like to revisit EPP and ECP in terms of certain cartographic assumptions on clause structure, the notion of criterial freezing, and the possibility of deriving the freezing effects from labeling.
