About the Speaker

Oxford University Press

In this chapter I consider a challenging set of data: the dependencies from a future verbal form. So far, I have proposed that in Italian and English, both DAR languages, an embedded context requires that the subject's coordinate be syntactically represented. The contexts depending from a future seem to constitute a systematic exception, in that the interpretation obtained presents some anomalies that do not conform to DAR contexts. The aim of this chapter is to show that as soon as we enlarge the empirical basis, considering for instance the compatibility of the embedded verbal with temporal locutions of various kinds, the picture changes and turns out not to be exceptional any longer.

Keywords:   temporal dependencies, future tense, Double Access Reading, temporal locutions, Italian, English
