I have been studying Raising and Controlling, but it seems quite hard to understand its function and uses. I would like any of you to analyze this explanation and tell me whether I got it correct or not:
Subject-control verbs are verbs that take a to-infinitive phrase as its complement and its subject is the same who performed the main action, for example:
The man tried [to run faster]
In the sentence above, the subject of the to-infinitive phrase is the same who performed the action of trying (The man).
Is it correct?
