Abstract [en]

An interesting morphosyntactic feature that has been observed in e.g. New Persian and Balochi is that the same suffix that marks indefinite restrictive selection out of a generic unit or a plurality (the so-called yā-ye vaḥdat) is also attached to head nouns of restrictive relative clauses. The purpose of the article is to investigate whether an extension of the use of the suffix denoting indefinite selection to mark antecedents of restrictive relative clauses similar to the one observed in Persian has also taken place in Balochi. If there is such a marking, in what variants of Balochi does it occur? In these cases, should it be seen as an internal development in Balochi parallel to that of Persian or can it be attributed to linguistic influence from Persian? Data from different Balochi dialects are investigated and the conclusion is that the dialects divide neatly into three groups when it comes to the marking of the antecedent, those heavily influenced by Modern Persian, those where there has been a close contact with, but not massive influence from Persian and those dialects where there has been a limited influence from Persian, mainly in its classical form.
