mark: marker

A marker is the word introducing a finite clause subordinate to another clause. For a complement clause, this is words like que or se. For an adverbial clause, the marker is typically a subordinating conjunction like enquanto or embora. The mark is a dependent of the subordinate clause head. In a relative clause, it is a normally uninflected word, which simply introduces a relative clause, such as que. In this last use, one needs to distinguish between relative clause markers, which are mark from relative pronouns, which fill a regular verbal argument or modifier grammatical relation.

Era de facto por ali que começava a surgir perigo
mark(surgir, que)

Note that this relation holds between the marker and the head of the subordinate clause, which can be a non verbal element.

Sugere ainda que seja elaborada uma circular
mark(elaborada, que)
