- Within GB Theory, the traditioal notion of raising-to-object is eliminated in favor of a device which reduces a barrier. While most of the facts that motivated the rule of raising-to-object can be explained by the exceptional government relation between) the matrix predicate and the complement subject, there is evidence in Korean that the 'raised' NP must belong to the matrix clause at the S-structure level, and thus that the S'-Deletion hypothesis is untenable. Two arguments are provided for the raising hypothesis based on quantifier floating and long-distance scrambling of adjuncts.
