Abstract
In this paper, I discuss the structure of restrictive and non-restrictive relative clauses based on Swe-dish data. The proposed analysis suggests that the non-restrictive relative clauses is an adjunct ad-joined to DP and that the restrictive relative clause is an argument of D, merged in Spec-DP. In my analysis, I assume a non-valued definiteness feature marked EPP in D that must be matched by a corresponding definiteness feature. In the non-restrictive construction, D finds its corresponding feature within the relative head; i.e. the suffixed article. In the restrictive construction, on the other hand, D must be matched against an element in the relative clause. This matching operation seems to be the underlying grammar that carries the... (More)
