§ 74.

When the relative is governed by the verb in the relative clause, the subject of that verb, without being expressed directly, may be implied in a possessive definitive (§ 18) placed before the antecedent.

  • Tau tangata i karanga ai, the man whom you called (for Te tangata i karanga ai koe).

  • Taku whare e hanga nei, the house which I am building.
