Abstract

Borsley (1997) criticizes the raising analysis of relative clauses revived by Kayne (1994) in the framework of antisymmetry theory. Most of his remarks concern the analysis of English headed relative clauses.

This article presents a revised version of Kayne's proposal that provides an answer to these criticisms. It is argued that the raising approach is indeed tenable and that the analysis of this empirical domain is fully consistent with the restrictiveness of the antisymmetry theory.
