We report preliminary findings on the morpho-syntactic structure of relative constructions  in  French  Sign  Language  (LSF).  We  describe  two  manual  markers  that  are  analyzed as d-like relative pronouns and we show that LSF has both internally and externally headed relative clauses. We offer a unified derivation for both types of relative clauses.
