Raising and Transparency.
Langacker, Ronald W.
Language, v71 n1 p1-62 Mar 1995
An account of the phenomena that transformational syntax handled by means of "raising" is formulated in the context of cognitive grammar. Raising is analyzed as a special case of the metonymy that relational expressions exhibit in regard to their choice of overtly coded arguments. The transparency of these constructions is explained.
