NULL SUBJECTS AND THE STRUCTURE OF PARAMETRIC THEORY





This is a 5-year research project funded by the AHRC (AR14458) and running from 1 October 2002 until 30 September 2007. It is a joint project involving the Universities of Cambridge and Newcastle and led by Anders Holmberg (School of English Literature, Language and Linguistics, University of Newcastle upon Tyne), and Ian Roberts and David Willis (Department of Linguistics, University of Cambridge). More detailed Project information can be found here.
