This article aims at reformulating in more current terms Hoekstra and Mulder’s (1990) analysis of the Locative Inversion (LI) construction. The new proposal is crucially based on the assumption that Small Clause (SC) predicates agree with their external argument in phi-features, which may be morphologically reflected, as in the case of adjectival agreement in theItalian copular construction "Maria è malata-3sg.fem", or abstract, as in the English copular construction.
