In this work we analyse temporal phenomena in clauses dependent from fictional predicates, mainly considering Italian data. We show that unexpected facts arise concerning temporal interpretation in languages such as Italian and English – namely, the suspension of the requirement that all events be (temporally) anchored (anchoring condition). This will call for a re-thinking of the vdry notions of anchoring conditions and SOT, and of their role in the interpretation of propositional attitude. Our concusions hold also for other Romance languages, and for a large number of contexts, including the contensive individual contexts discussed by Katz (1995)

Abstract

In this work we analyse temporal phenomena in clauses dependent from fictional predicates, mainly considering Italian data. We show that unexpected facts arise concerning temporal interpretation in languages such as Italian and English – namely, the suspension of the requirement that all events be (temporally) anchored (anchoring condition). This will call for a re-thinking of the vdry notions of anchoring conditions and SOT, and of their role in the interpretation of propositional attitude. Our concusions hold also for other Romance languages, and for a large number of contexts, including the contensive individual contexts discussed by Katz (1995)
