The rule conditioning the use of resumptive pronouns in Earlier Egyptian relative clauses is shown to apply also in cases deemed questionable by the scholar who originally formulated it. According to this rule, omission of resumptive pronouns follows from locality with the agreement-carrying expression. It is shown that the latter should be understood in an extended sense to refer to the prosodic unit containing the agreement morphology rather than the mere ‘carrier’ alone. It is suggested that it is more precisely locality with this wider ‘agreement domain’ that determines whether or not a resumptive pronoun appears in the relative clause
