SYNTAX: process by which a relative clause (e.g. the man
[who you see e]) is derived from an underlying non-relative clause
(the man [you see the man]). The derivation includes
NP-deletion under identity (the man), insertion of a relative pronoun
(who), and wh-movement. This analysis has been replaced by
one in which relative pronouns are base-generated.
