This chapter explores two aspects of control constructions in Polish: A-movement out of CP-infinitives and case transmission and case independence in control constructions with predicative adjectives. The availability of the option of A-movement out of CP-infinitives is credited to a minimal redefinition of the vP phase, whereby the complement domain of the CP dominated by v is accessible to external probing up to the point where thematic properties of v are saturated. The transmission and independence of case on predicative adjectives in control constructions are due to three empirically justified assumptions: (1) Instrumental on the predicative adjective is a default case, (2) an infinitive introduced by a lexical complementizer can optionally function as a phase and (3) only the T probe can be involved in multiple Agree.
