Raising and control have figured in every comprehensive model of syntax for
forty years. Recent renewed attention to them makes this collection a
timely one. The contributions, representing some of the most exciting
recent work, address many fundamental research questions. What beside the
canonical constructions might be subject to raising or control analyses?
What constructions traditionally treated as raising or control might not
actually be so? What classes of control must be recognized? How do tense,
agreement, or clausal completeness figure in their distribution? The
chapters address these and other relevant issues, and bring new empirical
data into focus.
