 This dissertation investigates the conditions under which the verb
 moves to the highest inflectional category. A correlation between
 distinctive morphological marking of the person features [1st]
 and [2nd] and V to I raising is noted and explained. Emphasis is
 placed on Germanic languages with a left-headed VP (English, Yiddishp
 and the Scandinavian languages), but data from Romance are also
 considered. For further information, contact
