Abstract

This paper is meant as an appendix to den Besten (1981, 1998a), in which the idea is defended that the Afrikaans relative marker <i>wat</i> &#8216;WHAT&#8217; is a complementizer. Now invariant <i>wat</i> can also be used in possessive relatives in colloquial Afrikaans, which seems to argue for a pronominal status of <i>wat</i> (at least in so fas as the pertinent environment is concerned). However, I will show that there are good reasons to stick to a unitary analysis for invariant relative <i>wat</i>.
