Title: Interpretação temporal dos domínios infinitivos na construção de reestruturação do português europeu
Issue Date: 2010
Abstract: This paper discusses evidence that the analysis of EP restructuring complex predicates must take the relation between syntactic and semantic factors into account. Thus, it is argued that the embedded infinitive is temporally dependent on the matrix tense, since only the matrix time interval can be selected as the Temporal Perspective Point of the embedded situation and the utterance time is excluded. It is also argued that in the infinitival domain a defective T with unspecified temporal features is projected. The valuation of these features proceeds by Agree between the matrix and the embedded T, originating only one tensed phase.
