Abstract

A frequent, implicit, assumption is that the different types of relative clauses (nonrestrictive, restrictive, amount, kind-defi ning, infi nitival and reduced participial relatives) are in one and the same language merged in one and the same position. Here, evidence will be presented that their merger is actually at different heights of the nominal extended projection.
