Description:
Recent research in formal syntax, syntactic processing has rekindled interest in longstanding issues posed by relative clauses and related constructions. These include the status of island phenomena, the role of nonsyntactic factors in relative clause processing and the status of para-RC constructions such as noun complements and participial relatives. Because the typological literature has focused on claimed idiosyncrasies of relative clauses in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean, we focus on prehead relative clauses in East Asian language, but our program draws other languages such as English and Irish in to the discussion as well.
