Subject Areas: Passive, Lexical Rules, HPSG, German Syntax
In this paper I show that object to subject raising approaches as suggested by Pollard (1994) and me (1999) are problematic since they cannot account for adjective formation in a satisfying way. The approach by Heinz and Matiasek (1994), which is a formalization of Haider's ideas (1986), cannot account for modal infinitives and control.
I develop a lexical rule based approach and it will be shown that this approach also extends to tricky cases of remote passive.
