Content in Embedded Sentences

Content in Embedded Sentences
In this overview, we look at embedded clauses that report somebody's attitude or speech. Semantic content in the embedded clause can in some such cases be interpreted from either of two perspectives: that of the speaker or that of the attitude holder/speaker being reported on. Other classes of content do not exhibit this ambiguity. Our overview shows which factors determine the interpretation of embedded linguistic and non-linguistic material and develop a partial explanation.
