Title: Sobre algumas construções pseudorelativas em português
Publisher: Porto : Universidade do Porto. Faculdade de Letras
Issue Date: 1995
Abstract: This article attempts to analyse a complex of pseudorelative constructions, introduced by Verbs of perception or expressions of a presenting type or those included in certain "independent" constructions. In common with the relatives they have the structure of encasement of oration of que in a NP. But they have properties which distinguish them: (i)they do not take a relative morpheme, only the complementator que and therefore the "co-referential" interpretation is derived from the direct identification of the content of the empty category by the stroke [+CONC] in COMP and indirectly by the superior NP; (ii) the pseudorelatives have, in general, a tense which depends on that of the master oration, described as a COMP [- IND. T.]. This aspect allows us to position the pseudorelatives closer to infinitive and gerundial constructions.
