We review the various non-canonical positions in which the thematically highest argument can occur in Icelandic and in Swedish. We show that NPs in these non-canonical positions have subject properties in both languages. We summarize the restrictions that we are aware of holding on the various positions and discuss whether they are configurational or thematic/semantic in nature.
