csubj: clausal subject

A clausal subject is a clausal syntactic subject of a clause, i.e., the subject is itself a clause. The governor of this relation might not always be a verb: when the verb is a copular verb, the root of the clause is the complement of the copular verb. The dependent is the main lexical verb or other predicate of the subject clause.

Example 1: The clausal subject is the relative clause, which has a main verb.

Който е закъснял , ще чака . \n Who is late , will wait-he .
csubj(чака, закъснял)
csubj(wait-he, late)

Example 2: The clausal subject is the to-clause (да се срещнем)

Предстои да се срещнем . \n Coming-it-is to REFL.meet-each-other .
csubj(Предстои, срещнем)
csubj(Coming-it-is, REFL.meet-each-other)
