3 Intensional Transitives
- Attitude Problems
- Oxford University Press
This chapter focuses on the semantics of intensional transitive verbs (itv's) ‘Fear’ is transitive, or has a standard transitive use, since it has a standard use in which it takes a direct object (it also has a standard use in which it takes a clausal complement, either finite, as in ‘fear that the door is open’, or non-finite, as in ‘fear to open the door’). And ‘fear’ is intensional, or at any rate not extensional. This chapter classifies itv's and exhibits some problematic aspects of their behaviour.
