  • Relativization in Arabic
  • Published at:Damascus UNIV.journal-V14-Number(4) 1998
  • This article points out the typological characteristics and the types of relative clauses in classical Arabic; it also examines the relativization process in view ofComrie's (1981) hierarchy to relative clause formation and shows that relative clauses in Arabic follow their head noun in agreement with Greenberg's universals about relative clauses Cross-linguistically. Finally, it shows that Arabic, unlike many other laiigauges, relativizes on all grammatical relations.
