nsubj: nominal subject

A nominal subject is a nominal phrase which is the subject of a clause. 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.

Jeg har ingenting mer å si om det nå \n I have nothing more to say about that now
Dette svaret er viktig for Frp \n This answer is important for Frp

Note that in cases where there is an expletive subject (expl), the nsubj relation is used to express the potential/postposed subject:

Det eksisterer allerede en debatt \n There already exists a debate
