Nick in JEAL on control and restructuring

Congratulations to Nick Huang, whose Control complements in Mandarin Chinese is now out in the Journal of East Asian Linguistics. On the basis of Mandarin data, Nick argues that control predicates can take fully clausal complements, and also display restructuring phenomena despite this, contrary to recent proposals. His analysis of control in Mandarin also lends new support to the claim that Chinese makes a distinction between finite and nonfinite clauses.
