The attested differences indicate changes affecting Standard (British) English during Late Modern English. The paper discusses three important aspects: in Early Modern English, (i) which was available for human subjects, (ii) that-relatives had a higher proportion, and (iii) the equative element as could introduce relative clauses as a complementiser. The paper argues that the disappearance or reduction of alternative forms to who/whom was driven both by internal and by external factors, and that significant differences can be observed between the standard variety and regional dialects.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:contributor>Bacskai-Atkari, Julia</dc:contributor> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2020-05-25T12:38:44Z</dcterms:available> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
