I was reading this analysis of the derivation below. And I wasn't familiar with the terminology "original Merge position." Is it just like "the base position"? Here is the sentence being parsed along with its translation:
De CHOMSKY varios libros han ganado premios internacionales, no de Trotsky.
Of Chomsky several books have won awards international-PL, not of Trotsky
The example is taken from a paper by Angel L. Jiménez-Fernández wuwr.pl/awr/article/download/153/132
Under this tree diagram, Jiménez-Fernández explains,
On the CP phase different mechanisms apply: (1) The [Foc]- feature alongside the EF under C attracts the PP de Chomsky from its original Merge position in Spec-*v** P to Spec,CP. (2)...
Could someone tell me if there is a difference between the terminology "original Merge position" and "the base position", if so, what exactly is the difference?
