nsubj: nominal subject

A nominal subject (nsubj) is a noun or nominal phrase that performs the syntactic role of subject in a clause. It is obtained by answering the question kdo ali kaj. In Slovene, this relation is typically used for nouns in the nominative case. It is also used for nouns in the genitive case when the nouns are negated or when they appear together with expressions of quantity.

The nsubj relation is not used for the so-called logical subjects—agents or experiencers of an action on the semantic level which on the syntactic level perform a function other than that of the subject in the nominative case. These can range from prepositional phrases (e. g. pri nas jemo) to objects in the accusative (Mijo zebe) or dative case (meni se je zdelo). Such structures are marked according to their superficial syntactic function (that is, as obl, obj, or iobj) and not according to their semantic role.
