Abstract

Kuno (1976) presents arguments for raising to object (RTO) in Japanese. After summarizing his analysis, this article presents additional data supporting RTO. Alternative analyses are also critically examined. The significance of RTO constructions in Japanese is that the RTO complement clause has a complementizer. It is suggested that this is permissible under the theory outlined in Chomsky 2000 if the RTO complement CP may have one A(-adjoined)-position in its edge.
