Sample text

At first sight, the gerundial/infinitival problem looks unrelated to agreement. But recall that we have decided to assimilate control to agreement. Suppose we revisit, with reference to Bangla data, the cross-linguistically familiar contrast between gerunds and infinitivals seen in the control examples (5)-(8) adapted from Dasgupta (2006: 163). 4 But the infinitivals shown in (6) and (8) permit only subject sharing, never the arbitrary option. Do the ideas of section 1 underwrite an enlightening account of (5)–(8) that helps us to understand (1)–(4)?

Comparison with familiar frameworks may help readers to follow biaxial proposals. Call A in (10) an adjunct, then, N in (11) a complement, and N in (12) a specifier, but keeping the limitations of cross-framework translations in view. At the level of analysis, the biaxial approach can distinguish specifiers of T from specifiers of V, if desired, at (13), where V feature-binds the N’s agent theta role feature (or a version where a little v binds the feature). One may relate (13) to (12) representationally or derivationally; both choices are biaxiality-compatible.

V in Binodal (11) binds N’s kappa-feature accusative, whose paradigmatic identification serves to link the V lexeme syntagmatically to its object. But (10) has the adjective’s phifeatures bound by the nominal node, not the particular nominal lexeme (to cut a few expository corners). T[ ] Binodal (12) contrasts not just with (10), where the lexical head [V] invites dependant N, but with (11), where dependant y moves in on N[ __ ] without reference to the lexeme occupying [ __ ]. T says that no matrix-internal boundary separates 40 Probal Dasgupta verbhood from tense features.
