In Cholón, an indigenous language from northern Peru, subordinate clauses are formed by means of nominalizers or subordinators. Most of these markers attach to reduced verb forms, but some nominalizers are attached to a fully inflected form. Nominalizers can be followed by a case marker or by a combination of case markers. This paper deals with the different subordinate clauses found in the data gathered by Fray Pedro de la Mata in the 18th century, and it discusses how they are formed, in particular with respect to the employment of subordinating and nominalizing suffixes and of case markers.
