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.

For the clausal subject of a passive verb or verb group the subtype csubj:pass is used.

Ինձ զարմացրեց , որ նա ոչինչ չասաց : \n Me surprised , that he did-not-say anything .
csubj(զարմացրեց, չասաց)
mark(չասաց, որ)
csubj(surprised, did-not-say)
mark(did-not-say, that)
Զինվորին հիվանդանոցից տուն փոխադրելը երկար տևեց : \n To-take the soldier to house from hospital took long .
csubj(տևեց, փոխադրելը)
csubj(took, To-take)
Հարկավոր է խոսել ։ \n It-is necessary to-speak .  
csubj(Հարկավոր, խոսել)
csubj(necessary, to-speak)

We also analyze the nominal predicates with clausal subjects formed by subordinating conjunction որ similarly.

Լավ է , որ դու կարդացել ես գիրքը : \n Good is , that you have read the-book .
csubj(Լավ, կարդացել)
cop(Լավ, է)
aux(կարդացել, ես)
mark(կարդացել, որ)
csubj(Good, read)
cop(Good, is)
aux(read, have)
mark(read, that)
