acl: clausal modifier of noun (adjectival clause)

acl stands for finite and non-finite clauses that modify a nominal. The head of the acl relation is the noun that is modified, and the dependent is the head of the clause that modifies the noun.

Тя няма право да се предава .
acl(право-3, предава-6)
She does not have the right to surrender .
acl(right-6, surrender-8)

This relation is also used for optional depictives. The adjective is taken to modify the nominal of which it provides a secondary predication.

A relative clause is an instance of acl, characterized by finiteness and usually omission of the modified noun in the embedded clause. Some languages use a language-particular subtype acl:relcl for the traditional class of relative clauses.

Така че много добре знам това , което говоря .
acl:relcl(това-6, говоря-9)
So I know very well what I am speaking about .
acl:relcl(what-6, speaking-9)
