The main clause v has a set of non-interpretable/unvalued phi-features, which will activate it as a probe. These features will target both the DP-subject ti Maria and the N koritsi in order to acquire their values. , feminine and neuter respectively. Thus, the gender feature of the probe v will target two different values of the same feature. Since features have only one value per element, we expect the derivation to crash. The same holds for example (19b = 20b) as far as the number feature is concerned, with the same results.

In most cases a preverbal DP-subject has a topic reading. See Philippaki-Warburton (1985), Tzanidaki (1998), Laskaratou (1998) and the discussion in Horrocks (1994). . The exact position of the DP-subject in V(O)S constructions is a complicated issue. Alexiadou (1999) suggests that it occupies its theta-position inside the vP and that the order is derived with the DP-object moving over it by means of a p-movement (Zubizarretta 1998). PhilippakiWarburton (2001), in a survey of the word-order patterns in Greek in relation to the possible functions of the DP-subject, points out that such an analysis makes wrong predictions about the possible readings of the DP-subject in VOS structures (see also Roussou 2001).
