Scandinavian relative clause extractions - Apparent restrictions

Heinat, Fredrik LU and Wiklund, Anna-Lena LU (2015) In Working Papers in Scandinavian Syntax 94.
Abstract
This brief article investigates the restrictions on Mainland Scandinavian relative clause extraction that have figured in the literature on island constraints. The conclusion is that none of these restrictions can be regarded as constraints on relative clause extraction per se and therefore that the peripheral status standardly assigned to Mainland Scandinavian relative clause extraction cannot be maintained.
