Let X ⊂ be a smooth variety. The embedding in gives naturally rise to the notion of embedded tangent spaces. That is the locus spanned by tangent lines to a point x ∈ X. Generally the embedded tangent space intersects the variety X only at the point x. In this paper I am interested in those X for which this intersection, for x ∈ X general, is a positive dimensional subvariety. The results of this paper support the conjecture that these varieties are built out of some special varieties.
