Dear J├╝rgen,

since you don't mention it, let me remind you of the Latin "relative 
adjunction" (/relativischer Anschluss/), which is very prominent in Old 
(Plautus) and Classical (Cicero, Caesar) Latin and may well have 
provided the model for this construction in various modern European 
languages. Needless to say, the topic is treated (with references to 
earlier literature) in Lehmann 1984 
<http://www.christianlehmann.eu/publ/Lehmann1984_Der_Relativsatz_OCRed.pdf>.

Cheers,
Christian
