Hi, all,

I have a question abour raising.    

As I understanding it, raising is taking a constituent from a complement clause
and placing it in the matrix clause, like so ...

Tom believes SHE is a secret agent.   >>>   Tom believes HER to be a secret agent.   

I read somewhere that many languages don't have much raising.   

I wanted to know how whether all Germanic languages have raising, and if so, what kind.

Thanks in advance,
