Abstract

This paper deals with partial control, the phenomenon that instead of identity there is a subset relation between the controller and the controllee in a control construction. We argue that the context dependency of partial control requires an anaphoric approach, rather than hard-coding the possibility of a reference shift in the semantics of the control verb. The anaphoric analysis is formalized in Partial Compositional Discourse Representation Theory.
