Abstract
This paper is concerned with the nature of COMP in current linguistic theories. It will be demonstrated that there exists a fundamental asymmetry between that-clauses and wh-clauses on the one hand, and relative clauses and non-relative wh-clauses on the other. This asymmetry can hardly allow those types of clauses to come under the same category CP or COMP, suggesting that there must be a categorial difference between them. These considerations lead us to conclude that that is a sentence-preposition, while the wh-phrase is an element introducing S', and that wh-movement in a relative clause is an adjunction of the wh-phrase to the that-clause, while wh-movement in a non-relative wh-clause is a movement substituting the wh-phrase for the [+WH] feature.
