"Infinitives 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."

Industry Reviews

"Wurmbrands Distributionsanalysen gehen vor allem der Idee nach, daß syntaktische Struktur und semantische Interpretation parallel laufen. Dabei verfolgt die Verafsserin eine große Zahl deutscher Verbeinbettungen bei Modalverben, Anhebungskonstruktionen, langer Objektversetzung und Rekonstruierungskonfigurationen. Theoretische Folgerungen ebenso wie empirische Proben am deutschen Material werden zweifellos anregende Wirkung vor allem fur Spiegelungen in anderen germanischen Sprachen haben."
