Abstract [en]

In this paper I show that Swedish has a type of relative clause that doesn’t modifynominal expressions, contrary tomost descriptions/definitions of relative clauses.Instead this type of relative clause modifies evaluative predicates. The relativeclause has similarities to both control clauses and attributive relative clauses.I point out some issues that theoretical accounts of these relative clauses musttake into consideration, and also how current generative analyses fail to meetthese considerations. A promising route in such a generative framework seemsto be one where the head of the relative clause and the relative clause itself areindependently merged in the structure; the head as subject in the matrix clauseand the relative clause as an adjunct/complement to the predicate it modifies.What makes this relative clause different from NP modifying relative clauses isthe relation between the gap and the head.
