Abstract: The study of relative clauses (RCs) has been central to both theoretical linguistics and studies in acquisition. This thematic issue of Studies in Second Language Acquisition makes a very important new contribution in this area by highlighting recent developments in thinking on the structure of RCs crosslinguistically and by introducing new data on the acquisition of Japanese, Korean, and Cantonese as first languages (L1s) and second languages (L2s). In this commentary, I will focus on two themes that emerge from the articles: representation and processing of RCs.
