Abstract

This paper examines a surprising correlation between adjunct control and <i>wh</i>-movement in Portuguese: object control into an adjunct clause may be allowed in addition to subject control if the matrix object undergoes <i>wh</i>-movement. Assuming Hornstein&#8217;s (2001) account of adjunct control within the Movement Theory of Control and making an amendment to Bo&#353;kovi&#263;&#8217;s (2007) parameterization of edge features, I argue that the unexpected cases of object control arise in Portuguese when Merge-over-Move is inapplicable due to the presence of edge features on <i>wh</i>-elements.
