By Idan Landau

This publication revives and reinterprets a chronic instinct working via a lot of the classical paintings: that the unitary visual appeal of compulsory keep an eye on into enhances conceals an underlying duality of constitution and mechanism. Idan Landau argues that keep an eye on enhances divide into kinds: In perspective contexts, keep watch over is verified via logophoric anchoring, whereas non-attitude contexts it boils right down to predication. the excellence can be syntactically represented: Logophoric enhances are developed as a moment tier above predicative complements.The concept derives the compulsory de se analyzing of professional as a different type of de re perspective with no ascribing any inherent function to seasoned. whilst, it offers a principled rationalization, in keeping with function transmission, for the contract homes of professional, that are stipulated on competing semantic money owed. eventually, it derives a outstanding common asymmetry: the truth that contract at the embedded verb blocks keep an eye on in perspective contexts yet now not in non-attitude contexts. This e-book is exclusive in being firmly grounded in either the formal semantic and the syntactic experiences of regulate, supplying an built-in view that would entice students in either components. via bringing to endure present refined grammatical analyses, it bargains new insights into the classical difficulties of regulate theory.
