The main issue of the present paper is whether the ‘Raising-to-Object’ phenomenon in Japanese can be accounted for without postulating the process of Raising-to-Object. I will reject the Raising-to-Object analysis and propose the CP-ECM analysis, a variant of the Exceptional Case-Marking analysis proposed originally for the ‘Raising-to-Object’ phenomenon in English. I will also discuss what kind of parameters are relevant to some of the differences in Japanese and English with respect to Exceptional Case-Marking processes.
