Impersonal null-subjects in Icelandic and elsewhere

Sigurðsson, Halldor Armann LU and Egerland, Verner LU (2009) In Studia Linguistica 63(1). p.158-185
Abstract
We study the properties of impersonal null-subjects, in particular in Icelandic, exploring the idea that such elements are constructed in syntax (rather than being lexical pronouns deleted in PF). In addition, we discuss the cross-linguistic distribution of impersonal null-subjects.
