Abstract

In this paper, I agree that embedded V2-clauses are not coordinated independent speech acts, but are regular subordinated claues that lack independent assertive force. I will show however that V2 in this clauses idicates that the embedded propsotion is epistemically anchored to the speaker and argue that this assertive potential of embedded V2 clauses needs to be licensed by an assertive operator in the main clause, thereby accounting for their distributional properties
