|On the Syntax and Semantics of Imperatives|
Sabine Iatridou (MIT)
16 septembre 2008
We will be investigating the type of sentences called imperatives, which can be used as commands and permissions. The lectures will contain a brief overview of the most frequented research areas in the existing syntactic and semantic literature and will focus on certain open questions. This course touches on verbal morphosyntax, clausal structure, negation, modals, mood, performatives, apparent mismatches between syntactic form and semantic interpretation.
