This volume brings together recent work in generative syntax on correlative relative constructions. Greatly expanding on the Hindi-oriented scope of previous studies, it describes and analyzes correlative constructions in a range of languages, such as Basque, Dutch, Hungarian, Polish, Sanskrit, Serbo-Croatian and Tibetan, in comparison to correlativization in Hindi. The articles zoom in on three areas of interest: firstly, the similarities and differences between correlatives and other wh- and relative constructions; secondly, the derivation of correlative constructions and the position correlative clauses occupy in the host clause and thirdly, the matching effects that characterize the pairings between relative phrases and demonstrative phrases. The studies presented here will appeal to researchers and students with an interest in syntax in general and relativization strategies in particular.

Table of Contents

A unique contribution to the study of correlatives. It includes an excellent introduction that masterfully synthesizes over thirty years of theoretical research on the topic. The articles cover a range of languages and showcase the enduring relevance to linguistic theory of a construction once considered exotic. A must-read for anyone interested in correlatives or in relative clauses generally.
