This paper focuses on the so-called pseudorelatives (or predicative relatives) in Old Italian, specifically on clauses whose antecedent is the direct object of a perception verb (i.e. vedere). After discussing the main features of these clauses and comparing them with restrictive and non-restrictive relatives, the author analyzes their frequency and syntactic properties in a corpus of Tuscan texts dating back to the 3th and 4th centuries. Big attention is paid to the textual functions carried out by these constructions out and to their contribution to textual progression.
