    Talking Extraposition relative clauses

    I am interested from teachers whether they would accept...

    Everyone is strong who is healthy.

    If yes, are there any conditions that might make you not accept it (ie contextual factors or a different noun quantifier).

    Would you also accept...?

    The man is strong who is healthy

    If no, are there any conditions that you might accept an extraposed relative clause.

    Cheers,

    Re: Extraposition relative clauses

    This structure is a little uncomfortable for me but is used extensively in logic exercises.
