I'll just jump right to it.
I'm given the following sentence - "We remembered the scary dream", with the instructions to draw an X-Bar, and decide whether this is an ECM or a normal control type.
The thing is - it looks like a regular, simple sentence to me. Trying, or rather, forcing the ECM tests with idiomas and expletive DP, I can reach the conclusion that this is, in fact, an ECM sentence. But then it occured to me - if this is an ECM sentence, what's the inner predicate? Is it "scary"? Can "scary" even be considered a predicate? And how does this fit the ECM theory?
