Title: Infinitives: Restructuring and Clause Structure
Written By: Susanne Wurmbrand
URL: http://www.degruyter.com
Series Title: Studies in Generative Grammar
Description:

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.
