When Spading Met Swiping

The Case of Frisian

(p.68) 6 When Spading Met Swiping
The Syntax of Ellipsis

Jeroen van Craenenbroeck

Oxford University Press

Swiping and spading can cooccur in one and the same example in Frisian. This chapter shows that the analysis of such sentences follows straightforwardly from the individual analyses outlined in the previous chapter. The chapter also takes issue with Merchant's (2002:310) claim that Frisian lacks swiping, arguing that the ill-formedness of Merchant's example follows from independent differences between English and Frisian regarding the possibility of putting stress on stranded prepositions.
