On Romanian Perception Verbs and Evidential Syntax

Publication: Revue roumaine de linguistique, LVIII (3), p. 275-298
Publisher:Editura Academiei
Abstract:This paper focuses on Romanian perception verbs with an aim at sorting out the correlation between the type of evidential reading (i.e. direct versus indirect) and the type of complement to the verb. We argue that, beside lexical encoding of evidentiality, Romanian also resorts to syntactic encoding, which is manifested in two ways: (i) a direct evidential reading arises when the perception verb selects a reduced CP complement; whereas (ii) an indirect evidential reading (inferential, evaluative) arises when the verb selects a full-fledged CP, the subject of which moves to the matrix clause (Raising-to-Object – RtoO).
