Relative clauses in Ecuadorian Quechua
In this paper an attempt is made to analyze some of the strategies used in Ecuadorian Quechua to form relative clauses. The focus in the paper lies on the interaction between tense specification and specification of grammatical relations within the nominalized relative clause in several varieties of Ecuadorian Quechua. This interaction is modeled within the framework of Optimality Theory.
