Type 2 Rising
This contribution examines discontinuities in DG. These discontinuities are addressed in terms of <i>catenae</i> and <i>rising. </i>Any tree or any subtree of a tree as a catena. Rising occurs when a governor fails to dominate one (or more) of its governees. Two sorts of rising are distinguished: type 1 and type 2. Type 1 rising obtains when the risen catena is a constituent, whereas type 2 rising obtains when the risen catena is a nonconstituent. The Rising Principle expresses the main trait of instances of rising. Discontinuity sorts (e.g. fronting, scrambling, extraposition, NP-internal displacement) are classified in terms of type 1 and type 2 rising.
