    collocation

    Could you please tell me if it is possible to say 'rise a salary'?
    Does this sentence sound OK:
    My boss rose my salary up to £2000 a year.


    Thanks

    A salary can rise but a boss can't 'rise' a salary, Katiiiia.

    My boss raised my salary to 2000 a year.

    My salary rose to $2000 a year.

    I got a raise to $2000 a year.
