INFINITIVES: RESTRUCTURING AND CLAUSE STRUCTURE offers a detailed study
of the clausal architecture of infinitival constructions providing a
unified analysis of restructuring, control, modals, and raising. The
book critically evaluates previous proposals from both syntactic and
semantic perspectives and presents a new analysis incorporating many
recent developments in generative linguistic theory. In addition to its
theoretical contribution, INFINITIVES contains a detailed descriptive
overview of a range of constructions, primarily from the Germanic
languages and will thus not only be of value to generative linguists but
will also serve as a general reference source for those interested in
the Germanic languages.
