Historical Syntax and Linguistic Theory

Oxford University Press

Correlatives in early Sanskrit are far less restricted in syntax and interpretation than in modern Hindi. In Sanskrit, correlatives were paratactically adjoined to CP. Changes in CP structure, the loss of the clause‐initial string, led to syntactic subordination as adjunction to TP and the reanalysis of a relative pronoun as a complementizer.

Keywords:   correlative clauses, Sanskrit, Hindi, clause adjunction, renalysis of CP structure
