On the obligatory versus no control split in Korean
In Korean, Obligatory Control may, under certain conditions, fail to obtain. We present non-canonical cases of logophoric object control where (1) movement of the control clause, and (2) an overt infinitival subject give rise to configurations unexpectedly lacking the Obligatory Control signature; complements to logophoric object control verbs thus exhibit an alternation between Obligatory Control and No Control. In the No Control case, however, the embedded subject remains subject to the restriction that it cannot refer to the matrix author. We model the Obligatory versus No Control split derivationally, and show that control complementizers encode information sensitive to attitudinal function.
