Unintentionally out of control
This article explores the morphosyntax of a type of Norwegian get-passives in which the subject receives an agentive interpretation. These impose an animacy condition on the subject, and yet do not tolerate adverbs like intentionally. I argue that the properties of this construction can be explained within a framework like the one developed in Ramchand (2008).
