nsubj: nominal subject

A nominal subject is a nominal phrase which is the syntactic subject of a clause; in Bulgarian, the phrase is condsidered to be in nominative (in spite of the fact that nouns in Bulgarian do not have declension) . (See csubj for when the subject is clausal. See nsubj:pass and csubj:pass for when the subject is not the proto-agent argument due to valence changing operations.) The governor of the nsubj 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, which can be an adjective or noun.
