Previous research has considered the Old English relative clause from many different perspectives and has used many different Old English sources. This dissertation adds to the investigation of the relative clause by taking the text of the Anglo-Saxon Gospels, identifying the relative clauses within the corpus, and analyzing the placement of the verb within each clause. In addition, the Latin source is included for the purpose of proving that the OE translation is a valid source for syntactic study.
