31 Firstly, there are, in fact, two types of the EPP-feature and they behave differently. , by an expletive. The second type of the EPP-feature is added directly onto the phase head after exhausting its lexical subarray and is checked by movement, this is the EPP-feature on v and other phase heads inducing object shift or successive-cyclic movement.

In example (21c), where the bare plural object is moved to the CP phase, it is interpreted as backgrounded – therefore (21c) is pragmatically infelicitous as an answer to question (21a) – and the only possible interpretation of the object is generic. Similarly to the previous examples, data in (21) show that bare plurals, too, can be ambiguous between the existential interpretation and the presuppositional interpretation only in the vP-internal position. Following Diesing (1992), I assume that bare plurals introduce a variable and that the generic interpretation arises through a covert generic operator that binds the appropriate variable if the bare plural DP occurs in its restrictive clause.

E. acc a [Jana večer nakrmila kočku]. ’ Now consider the constituent structure of sentence (15c), which is repeated in (18a) and coordinated with appropriate constituents in (18b-e). The example shows that zastřelila is a constituent and so can be coordinated with another verbal constituent like pochovala. Zastřelila is contained in the vP constituent odpoledne zastřelila, which in turn is contained in psa odpoledne zastřelila. This phrase then is a constituent of Marie psa odpoledne zastřelila, which is a CP constituent because it can be coordinated with another CP constituent Jana kočku večer nakrmila.
