The Surface Structure of Relative Clauses
Lucas, Michael A.
Linguistics, 139, 83-120, Nov 74
This article attempts to show that a more rigorous approach to surface structure analysis can reveal distinctions just as subtle as those discovered through analyzing deep structures or transformations. Relative clauses are examined in relation to nominal constructions, and alternatives to restrictive and non-restrictive classifications are suggested. (SC)
