Abstract

This article is a survey of clause linking strategies in the South Arawakan language Baure. Since both coordinate and subordinate adjoined clauses are similar to main clauses, the major focus of the paper is on embedded clauses. Embedded clauses, which are formed by means of nominalization of the predicate, include relative clauses and complement clauses. The specific embedding strategies are contrasted structurally and semantically, which reveals how similar relative and complement clauses are in Baure.
