Romanian restrictive relatives: A head raising analysis?

Publication: Bucharest Working Papers in Linguistics, XII (2)
Publisher:Universitatea din București
Abstract:The paper investigates the syntax of restrictive relative clauses from a mainly descriptive viewpoint. It offers a critical view of the head raising analysis (Kayne 1994) and shows that no conclusive evidence supports the application of this analysis to Romanian. I suggest that a different theoretical approach, provided by the Matching Analysis (Chomsky 1965, Sauerland 1998), might instead account for the empirical facts I will bring to attention. However, I leave for future research the details concerning its implementation.
Key words:Romanian restrictive relative clauses, raising, matching
