This book aims to sort out the myths from the facts with regard to two issues of Old Romanian grammar: the syntax of root clauses, and the syntax of clausal complements to control and raising verbs. In these respects, the book proposes formal analyses based on principled constraints on topics such as the variation in verb–clitic word orders, the peculiarities of gerund and supine clauses, and the systematic replacement patterns in clausal complements. The formalizations take into account the results of cartographic tests and are developed in terms of the crash-merge/feature checking version of the Minimalist Program.

Keywords:   Old Romanian, root clauses, clausal complements, control verbs, raising verbs, cartography
