The syntactic structure of a well-organized text is often constricted and the connections between its elements clear enough to mark their relations using punctuation. Yet in contemporary Czech texts, this constriction may be loosened: the clause which should be subordinate to the main clause becomes independent, as if aspiring to become a new main clause. This is the case of complex sentences in which the substantive phrase of the main clause branches out into one relative clause followed by another coordinate relative clause whose dependence on the main clause is not expressed through the repetition of the relative pronoun.
