内容简介:Modal auxiliary verbs are a type of verb which expresses speaker’s attitude and opinion towards a proposition or an event, and their syntactic features have attracted much interest recently. This paper investigates the syntactic feature of modal auxiliary verbs in different languages, such as semantic constraints, the deletion of complement clause, constituent movement, psedo-cleft construction, temporal and aspect markers, and analyzes relevant hypotheses of modal auxiliary verbs under the framework of generative grammar. It finally revises the raising and control hypothesis of modal auxiliary verbs based on feature checking hypothesis.
