In the above example the Greek subject phrase [phrase omitted] is translated in CPA by a relative clause
, [phrase omitted], where the demonstrative [phrase omitted] "this one" serves as the headword, followed by the relative [phrase omitted] "who." Since the relative clause
neither begins nor ends the sentence, it cannot be left or right dislocated, but can be analyzed as the subject.
This means that a complex sentence offers the possibility for four functional types of dependent clauses: the relative clause
postmodifies the noun phrase; the clausal subject, the clausal object and adverbial clause are dependent clauses which function as clause constituents (Payne 2011: 334).

The two study questions were addressed through qualitative analysis as well as quantitative analysis of the frequencies of relative clause
reformulation and frequencies of different reformulation procedures in the different age groups.
SUB--INST-DCS-hide--IMPF 3POSS-mother-PL.PO __ 'those that hide behind their mother('s skirts)' In a construction like this, the head of the relative clause
fragments have a slightly different formula from the subordinate clause fragments discussed earlier.
Logistic regression results showed that Passive and Passivized Object Relative Clause
sentence structures served to correctly classify 80.4% of the cases.
Now we will analyse two examples the first representing a non-restrictive relative clause
and the second a restrictive relative clause
to see whether our hypotheses for structural Case assignment hold good or they behave differently for Pashto relative clauses
These aspects include assignment of thematic roles in passive sentences and assignment of referents in relative clauses
(Hesketh, 2006) and in those that contain clitic pronouns (see for a review van der Lely, 2004, 2005).
IA is not compatible with extra position of the relative clause
, which is possible and quite frequent in other cases (see section 2).
