Notes on infinitival relatives in Italian
Here certain properties of Italian infinitival relatives will be discussed which to our knowledge have not been addressed in previous work on this topic (Napoli 1976; Cinque 1988: § 1.1.5; Bianchi 1991, 2007). In particular, we will point out a distinction between two ‘da + infinitive’ relative constructions and a difference between da infinitival relatives and infinitival relatives introduced by relative pronouns; furthermore, we will illustrate the bounded vs unbounded nature of relativization under restructuring, and the properties of restrictive vs non-restrictive infinitival relatives.
Keywords: da and wh-infinitival relatives, modal force, island constraints, restructuring
