The TTC receives support from a number systematic contrasts between predicative and logophoric control, besides their different behavior in the presence of embedded inflection (the OC-NC Generalization). PRO in predicative control may be [-human] but PRO in logophoric control must be [+human] (because it is linked to a context-participant); the controller can be implicit in logophoric control but not in predicative control (general properties of syntactic predication); and control shift is only possible in logophoric, not predicative contexts. Although the phenomena are partly recognized, their systematic alignment with the type of control is not. Put together, they make a strong case for the underlying duality of OC as expressed in the TTC.
