502    Thesis (D.Phil.)--The University of York (United Kingdom),
520    This thesis is an attempt to show that The Principles and 
       Parameters approach can provide a solution to the complex 
       interaction between Case on the one hand and Aspect, 
       Transitivity, Modality, and Agreement, etc. on the other 
       in Hindi. The proposals argued for are: (i) a more 
       elaborate X'-structure; (ii) the proposed heads are Case 
       assigners; (iii) Case in Hindi is assigned at d-structure;
       (iv) intransitive verbs c-command their external arguments
       but transitive verbs don't; (v) the Extended Projection 
       Principle, not Case, is the motivation for NP-movement; 
       (vi) the diverse Case typologies are a result of two 
       parameters, the $\pm$ Case feature of the Verb and an 
       intrinsic ordering between the Case Filter and the 
       Extended Projection Principle 
520    The thesis argues that Case-marked NPs in Hindi should be 
       properly analyzed as K/Case Phrases (KPs). Although this 
       hypothesis provides an explanation for the apparently dual
       properties of the Hindi Case morphemes, that of Case-
       affixes and of postpositions, it complicates the binding 
       theory in Hindi. The solution lies in terms of a 
       distinction between the referential and the agreement 
       indices. K/Case indices enter into the licensing 
       conditions on NP-traces in Hindi 
520    The thesis also argues that the commonly held view of an 
       intimate association between Case and Tense and Case, 
       Agreement, and AGR is not sustainable and that the 
       existence of AGR phrases is suspect 
520    Agreement in Hindi is not a unitary phenomena. Different 
       heads in Hindi agree for different reasons: agreement with
       the tense auxiliary is for reasons of licensing conditions
       on predicates; with the aspectual and the infinitival/
       gerundive morpheme for lexical reasons. All structures of 
       predication are adjoined structures. This explains the 
       defective nature of IP and unifies all structures of 
       predication, namely the IP and Small Clauses
