[In the tradition of epistemic logic, knowledge is a relationship between an agent and a proposition, i.e., a piece of information that can be true or false in a given situation.]
[The previous chapter has introduced the primary goal of this book, i.e., comparing the proposition-oriented and question-oriented semantics for clausal complementation.]
[In Chap. 1, I introduced two theories of the semantics of clause-embedding predicates—the proposition-oriented theory and the question-oriented theory—and considered how they deal with the basic behavior of responsive predicates, i.e., those predicates that can embed either a declarative or an...
[In the previous chapter, we have discussed the semantics of rogative predicates—predicates that are compatible only with interrogative complements (e.g., wonder, ask)—and how it bears on the comparison between the proposition-oriented theory and the question-oriented theory. In this section, I...
[In the previous chapter, I have focused on three classes of responsive predicates/particles from cross-linguistic data—English predicates of relevance, Estonian contemplative predicates, and Japanese sentence-final particles—and argued that their interpretations call for a question-oriented...
[In Chap. 1, I discussed the challenges ‘picky’ predicates—those predicates that are compatible only with a certain clause type—pose for the semantics of clause-embedding predicates. It is important to recall that there are in fact two classes of picky predicates—rogative predicates and...
[There is a growing body of literature in the syntax and semantics of clausal complementation which advocates for the predicative view of clausal complementation, according to which clausal complements semantically act as a predicate modifying the object of an attitude (Kratzer, Handout from a...
[In the previous chapters, I have motivated the question-oriented theory for clause-embedding predicates based on a range of empirical facts. Throughout these chapters, we have seen that the question-oriented theory can adequately account for prima facie puzzling behaviors exhibited by various...
[Clausal complementation represents one of the most important empirical domains in formal semantics, given its relevance to numerous central theoretical topics in semantics, such as intensionality, attitudes, clause typing, and selection. At the same time, the highly complex empirical landscape...
