acl:relcl: relative clause modifier

A relative clause modifier (acl:relcl) marks relative clauses. The governor is the phrase or clause modified. Usually, it is a noun, but in Finnish it can also be a verb, when the dependent refers to the entire action described. The dependent is the main predicate of the relative clause.

##Diffs

###Turku Dependency Treebank

The governor can also be a verb, when the dependent refers to the entire action described in the main sentence.

###FinnTreeBank

FI_FTB applies the universal relation acl instead of the language-specific relation acl:relcl.
