A Comparative Introduction to XDG: The Deep Syntax Dimension ? p.1Introducing the Deep Syntax Dimension

going towards semantics

in particular: nding the predicates’ arguments

word order already factored out

dependency trees (Immediate Dominance) already
semantic
A Comparative Introduction to XDG: The Deep Syntax Dimension ? p.2Factoring out word order

einen roman maria schreibt

different word order, same grammatical functions/predicate
argument structure

Control
1. subject control: Maria einen Roman zu schreiben
verspricht (promise)
2. object control: Maria einen Mann berredet, einen
Roman schreiben (persuade)
3. indirect object control: Maria einem Mann hilft, einen
Roman zu schreiben (help)

Raising
1. subject raising: Maria einen Roman zu schreiben
scheint (seem)
2. object raising: Maria einen Mann einen Roman
schreiben sieht (see)
