Lionel Robert Jospin (pronounced lee-oh-NEL roh-BAIR zhoss-PAN) was born on July 12, 1937, into the Protestant family of a Socialist schoolteacher in Meudon, on the western edge of Paris. He was delivered, according to family legend, on a couch raised up on a set of the complete works of Voltaire to make it easier for the midwife.
The Bay Ridge Towers, two tall brick co-op buildings at the northern tip of Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, offer their residents two vast parking lots with an unusual feature. Although they are level with the buildings, they sit about 30 feet above a low patch of land, raised up on rows of giant pillars.
I'm not sure, but it seems using the verb "raise" (raise, raised, raised) as an intransitive verb is rather common among journalists, albeit oxforddictionaries.com has substantially no entry for this kind of usage.
Other dictionaries says that using "raise" as an intransitive verb is a dialectal form.
My question is: Can we legally use "raise" intransitively as well as newspapers induce to think?
