See Abeille, Godard, and Sag (1998), `Two kinds of composition in French complex predicates', in Hinrichs, Kathol , and Nakazawa (eds), 'Complex Predicates in Nonderivational Syntax, (Syntax and Semantics 30), AP Here it is argued that the `clitic trapping' (i.e. the fact that some clitics may be realized downstairs, even for upstairs verbs which are assumed to trigger `clitic climbing' obligatorily) can be accounted for by assuming that some composition verbs inherit (on ARG-ST) the COMPS elements of their verbal complement, while others inherit the ARG-ST elements of their verbal complement.
