acl:relcl: relative clause modifier

Head of an adjectival or verbal relative clause, usually marking the verb or nominal predicate in that clause, when the clause is marked by a relative converter (the Coptic language specific POS tag CREL, which is given the label mark, regardless of which form is used, such as ⲉⲧ, ⲉⲧⲉ, ⲉⲧⲉⲣⲉ, or also ⲉ for indefinite NPs with a relative-circumstantial; for circumstantial conversion proper see advcl). The arrow points from the modified element (usually a noun) to the predicate of the relative clause.


ⲛⲉⲧⲛ ⲏⲣⲡ ⲉⲧ ⲗⲟⲙⲥ \n your wine which is foul
acl:relcl(ⲏⲣⲡ, ⲗⲟⲙⲥ)

The p-et relative construction

Articles expanded by a relative clause in the p-et construction are actually stand-ins for a full NP head, so they are expanded using the function acl:relcl as in any other relative clause (‘the one which…’). See for instance both expanded articles in this example:

ⲃⲁⲥⲓⲙⲟⲥ/PROPN ⲡ/DET ⲉⲧ/SCONJ ϣⲟⲟⲡ/VERB ϩⲛ/ADP ⲛ/DET ⲉⲧ/SCONJ ⲟⲩⲁⲁⲃ/VERB \n Basimos, the one who is among the ones who are holy
