Degree phrase raising in relative clauses*

In this paper I will argue that modal degree of amount relative clauses, as well as Spanish AP degree relative clauses, are derived via overt DegP raising. I show that the two types of degree relative clauses discussed here are mirrored by two types of DegP that were proposed in Neelman, van de Koot and Doetjes (2004). This raises the possibility that the syntactic and semantic differences of the classes of degree relative constructions can be reduced to the type of lexical item that is raised out of the CP. Keywords: degree phrase; relative clause
