I argue that the ‘experiencer theta role’ is conceptually unnecessary and unsustained by syntactic evidence.
‘Experiencers’ can be reduced to different types of arguments.

But they differ in their veridicality: "think" is non-veridical and can report a false belief; but "know" can only report true beliefs because it is a veridical verb.Furthermore, the verbs differ in their factivity: uses of "x knows p", but not uses of "x thinks p", typically presuppose the truth of "p", because "know" is factive and "think" is not.Previous work motivates a two-stage model of agreement attraction in which the parser predicts the verb’s number and engages in retrieval of the agreement controller only when it detects a mismatch between the prediction and the bottom-up input (Wagers, Lau & Phillips, 2009; Lago, Shalom, Sigman, Lau & Phillips, 2015).It is the second stage of retrieval and feature-checking that is thought to be error-prone, resulting in agreement attraction. This dissertation is concerned with how elliptical sentences are generated.There are two main types of experiencers I discuss: experiencers of psychological verbs and experiencers of raising constructions.I question the notion of ‘experiencers’ itself; and explore some possible accounts for the ‘psych-effects’."
