In some contexts a matrix verb and its non-finite complement each represent independent syntactic and semantic domains but in other cases they represent a single domain, a process known as restructuring. Historically, restructuring has been primarily discussed in the field of syntax through analysis of clustering of clitics, passive formation, scrambling, adverbial modification and scope of negation. We argue that different syntactic configurations also come with distinct semantic interpretations and hence restructuring must be explained at the syntax-semantics interface. We take a fresh look look at restructuring within a semantic theory called Type Theory with Records (TTR) which captures both syntax and semantics of linguistic data, here taken from Slovenian.
