Student or Learner
Hello. I'm writing my graduation paper, and I can't find a grammar book that describes what is known to be either a 'Subjective Infinitive Construction' or 'The Subjective-with-the-Infinitive Construction':
- Those elections in April ARE CERTAIN TO BRING more protests.
- Defence minister since January, 2015, he IS BELIEVED TO BE in his 30s.
- The US and Cuba ARE EXPECTED TO ANNOUNCE the opening of embassies in each otherís capitals today.
My questions are:
1) Am I right with the name of the construction?
2) If there are any other names, please write it as well, it will be useful.
3) Please, help me find any grammar books describing this construction. This should be a grammar book not for beginners, but for students of Linguistics or advanced learners, or else...
I haven't found any info about this construction in these books:
