This chapter focuses on two apparently unrelated facts that could present problems for the cartographic approach, namely the degraded status of an adverbial PP in a functional specifier as opposed to an adverb, and backward binding in different classes of psych-verbs. By applying the notion of smuggling, it supports the cartographic approach to sentence structure integrated with Kayne’s (2004) proposal of prepositions as probes.

Keywords:   cartographic approach, adverbial PP, functional specifier, psych-verbs, smuggling, prepositions, backward binding
