Title: New Horizons in the Analysis of Control and Raising
Edited By: William D. Davies
Stanley Dubinsky
URL: http://www.springer.com/978-1-4020-6177-6
Series Title: Studies in Natural Language and Linguistic Theory
Description:

Note: This is the paperback edition of a previously announced title.

> Finely detailed empirical studies on control and raising
> Introduction of novel data for inclusion in theory construction
> The very latest theoretical developments in control and raising
> Provides a general overview of the general direction of current syntactic
inquiry into the nature of these constructions

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.
