This chapter proposes a relativization structure for adnominal adjectives in which the pre-adjectival definite marker and the adjective form a constituent excluding the noun. This is supported by a unified perspective on Greek poly-(*in)-definiteness, Scandinavian double definiteness, and the Germanic weak/strong adjectival declension alternation, and reveals exciting parallels between the extended AP and the tensed clause.

Keywords:   adjectival article, adjectival agreement, Germanic, Greek, relativization, extended AP
