Об ограничении на сентенциальный актант с союзом что при деагентивных употреблениях глаголов речи

Вопросы языкознания. 2018. № 3. С. 7-39.

The paper discusses distributional restrictions on the realization of sentential complement as a čto-clause observed in non-agentive uses of verbs of speech act. It is shown that these restrictions apply only when the sentential complement is in the oblique position and that they are related to the argument structure of the predicate (the presence of attitude holder). I present the results of an experimental study using factorial design (familiar to experimental work on island effects), which provide evidence for the grammatical reality of the observed restrictions. Several approaches to the distribution of sentential complements in generative grammar are discussed. I show that the observed restrictions can be accounted for by an approach presupposing the (abstract) Case requirement of nominal as well as sentential complement coupled with a specific mechanism of Case-licensing of sentential complements in oblique positions. The paper sheds new light on the nature of the distribution of sentential complements as opposed to nominal complements.
