control patterns and raising patterns

Beitrag von Snap2 »

Hello, nice forum!

In my mind, my question is difficult. I don't understand the differences between control patterns and raising patterns.

I think it's a kind of symantic but i can't explain or divided that.

e.g. :

1. He believes Mary to be a spy.
2. He prefers Mary to leave.
3. He asked Mary to leave.
4. He promised Mary to leave.

Can someone try to help me, plaese?

P.S.: I was trying to write down my questions, minds, answers in english. I'm sorry for my mistakes.
