Idan Landau argues that keep an eye on enhances divide into forms: In angle contexts, regulate is validated via logophoric anchoring, whereas non-attitude contexts it boils all the way down to predication. the excellence is additionally syntactically represented: Logophoric enhances are built as a moment tier above predicative complements.The concept derives the compulsory de se examining of professional as a distinct form of de re angle with out ascribing any inherent characteristic to seasoned. whilst, it presents a principled rationalization, in keeping with function transmission, for the contract houses of professional, that are stipulated on competing semantic money owed. ultimately, it derives a impressive 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 booklet is exclusive in being firmly grounded in either the formal semantic and the syntactic experiences of regulate, delivering an built-in view that might attract students in either components. through bringing to undergo present subtle grammatical analyses, it bargains new insights into the classical difficulties of keep an eye on theory.
