If a language limits its relative clause heads to core arguments of a verb such that item 1 below is ungrammatical, it may become necessary within discourse to use an applicative to promote an auxiliary argument into object position as in item 2:
1) * 1 see Bill with the telescope that is on the hill "I see Bill with the telescope that is on the hill." 2) 1 see-APP the telescope that COP on the hill "I see with the telescope that is on the hill."
However, since this is getting done for syntactic reasons, it is not desirable to lose entirely the normal object. How can I reintroduce Bill to the sentence while maintaining the applicative construction that allows the telescope to be relativized?
