Title: Kindly look at these sentences
Post by: binumal on January 08, 2018, 07:46:04 AM
   Here are two sentence taken from Hornstein's book.                                                    a. a.  Only Churchill remembers himself giving the BST speech
b.  Only Churchill remembers that he gave the BST speech.    -                                       How would you paraphrase the  sentence?  Who remembers what?     Can this sentence be paraphrased as " Churchil only remembers himself giving the BST speech"?

Churchill is the only person who remembers Churchill (himself) giving that particular speech.
