I'm trying to draw the syntax tree for the TP "Kim wants John to stop" (in the setting of Carnie's first three chapters).
I guess it contains the NP "Kim" and the VP "wants John to stop". The VP consists of the V "wants", NP "John", and [something else] "to stop".
What is that [something else]? This piece "to stop" cannot be a PP because the only rule for PP is PP -> P (NP) and "stop" is not a NP, it's a VP (or am I wrong)? And the fact that "to stop" is a VP contained inside another VP ("wants John to stop") ruins the whole theory because there cannot be a VP inside a VP. Am I wrong in saying that "wants John to stop" is a VP then? If so, what is it?
