Recent literature has observed grammatical impacts the expression of causation has on the structure of the verbal predicate (Folli and Harley 05, Schäfer 12). I argue that causation also plays a crucial role in determining the availability of infinitival ECM in English, providing evidence that the expression of causation has syntactic repercussions (cf. Neeleman and van de Koot 12 for an opposing view).
