This paper examines the position of preverbal subject in Greek SV(O) orders. Using interpretational and configurational evidence we confirm the conclusion of much of the standard literature that preverbal subjects in Greek do not occupy the [Spec, TP] position, but are left dislocated elements. In particular, we discuss the proposals of Roussou & Tsimpli (2006) and Spyropoulos & Revithiadou (2007, 2009), who argue for the existence of an A-subject in the Greek T-domain, and we point out a number of counterarguments to their suggestions. Finally, we tentatively suggest that the EPPT-requirement might be suspended in Greek.
