      ABSTRACT = {In current linguistic theory, subject-object asymmetries in German are a much discussed issue. One of the relevant test cases is the possibility of extraction from subjects. The traditional assumption is that German in this respect behaves parallel to English in the sense that extraction from subjects is be ungrammatical, while extraction out of objects is grammatical. In this paper we show that one can account for all those cases where extraction from subjects is ungrammatical without having to postulate subject-object asymmetries for German. Instead, we argue that mainly lexical properties of the governing head determine the possibility of extraction from its arguments. Finally, we show how lexical constraints in HPSG can capture the observed generalizations.},
