Dejar: entre verbo causativo y verbo de control

Renata Enghels UGent and Eugeen Roegiest UGent (2013) BULLETIN OF HISPANIC STUDIES. 90(5). p.505-522
abstract
It is generally known that the morphosyntactic marking of the causee in the causative factitive construction is rather complex. Moreover, most investigations of the factitive focus on the causative verb hacer (‘to do’), which serves as a model for the construction in general, and linguists have paid little attention to related verbs such as dejar (‘to let’). This study, based on a detailed corpus analysis, seeks to fill up this gap by centering on the syntax-semantics interface in the factitive expressing negative causation with dejar. A multifactorial analysis, taking into account both the polysemy of the main verb as well as the semantic characteristics of the main constituents of the construction, shows that the same parameters influence on (a) the choice between an infinitive complement or a que-clause, (b) the position of the nominal causee and (c) the accusative or dative case of the pronominal causee.
