Victori încearcă proi /PROi să cînte. g. Kempchinski 1986, Terzi 1992, Landau 2004). As in Alboiu (2004, in preparation), I adopt here an approach which views thetaroles as features that can be valued via Agree on a par with any other unvalued feature and propose a raising account of control, with neither PRO nor pro. As noted earlier, I take the absence of independent semantic tense in control subjunctives to be synonymous with the failure to value Case on the embedded subject D. , uT) in the subjunctive clause.

Note that a Case-marked PRO has ceased to be a contradiction since Chomsky and Lasnik (1993); moreover, I take Landau’s point (2004) who argues against the concept of ‘null Case’ and suggests that PRO checks its Case feature and has it valued as any DP would in that domain - except that it will never be phonetically spelled out due to its anaphoric status. Unsurprisingly, its antecedent will be the one with the privilege of phonetic features. As indicated by the brackets around the subject DP in (32), for Persian, the antecedent need not be pronounced, which is expected given the pro-drop status of this language.
