This study has a couple of aims as follows. First, it aims to show that in
analyzing English there-construction, the Feature Movement Analysis pro
posed on the basis of the Minimalist Program of Chomsky (1995) and
Lasnik (1995b) is superior either to the Category Movement Analysis of
Chomsky (1986, 1991) or to the Downward Movement Analysis of
Boskovié (1995) both conceptually and empirically. Second, a new feature
movement-based analysis will be proposed that can overcome the problems
of the analyses proposed by Chomsky (1995) and Lasnik (1995b).
. There have been tons of analyses proposed on English there-construction
in the generatíve grammar traditíon. Especially with the launch of the Mini
malist Program, its analysis entertains a more deepened scrutiny. By and
large, proposed analyses can be divided into two major trends according to
the development of the theory of generative grammar: one is the Category
Movement Analysis (Chomsky (1 986, 1991, 1993), Lasnik (1995a)) and
the other is the Feature Movement Analysis (Chomsky (1995), Lasnik
(1995b)). Both analyses basically assume upward movement (raising) of
associate NP or its formal features to there. In particular, Chomsky (1986)
proposes that the associate NP substitute there via raising, and Chomsky
(1991) proposes that the associate NP adjoin to there. Recently, Chomsky
(1995) proposes that the formal features of associate NP raise. These
movements are done due to different reasons: for Chomsky (1986, 1991,
1993), the movement is just for Case-checking. For Lasnik (1995a, 1995b),
it is for the satisfaction of theres morphological inadequacies. For Chomsky
(1995), the movement is triggered by the unchecked feature of Agr.
Bośković (1995), however, in his dissertation, points out problems of upward
movement-based analyses and proposes that there as an affiìx move
downward to associate NP. This paper aims to show that the formal features
of there moves to the associate NP not upward but downward. In par
ticular, this paper intends to draw conclusions as in (1) :
