Abstract [en]

This paper discusses the asymmetry in selectional restrictions found in the basic causative typology of Kayne (1975) and Burzio (1986), drawing heavily on data from the Finno-Ugric language Torne Sámi, proposing that the Base Object in Faire Par causatives participates in a Control-relation, which has the effect of reducing the kind of Objects that can occur in this causative type. In essence, the surface Object is not an argument of the Base Verb, but rather, it is an argument of the causative formative. However, no comparable restrictions are found in the Faire Infinitive construction. In these, the Base Verb can take the same range of complements that it can when it is used as a simplex matrix verb. It is therefore reasonable to conclude that the surface object in Faire Infinitives is also the actual Object of the Base Verb.
