Abstract

In this paper I argue that what regulates the (in-)felicity of the V-initial orders in MG has little to do with the oldness/novelty of referents of lexical items, or with possible restrictions on the syntax of discourse functions per se. Rather, I show that V-initial orders in MG fulfil independent requirements which run on the Syntax-IC Interface.
