During this quantity, Germen de Haan offers a multi-faceted view of the syntax, sociolinguistics, and phonology of West-Frisian. the writer discusses certain elements of the syntax of verbs in Frisian: finiteness and Verb moment, embedded root phenomena, the verbal complicated, verbal complementation, and complementizer contract. simply because Frisian has minority language prestige and is of curiosity to sociolinguists, the writer stories the linguistic alterations in Frisian lower than the impact of the dominant Dutch language and, extra more often than not, displays on the right way to take care of contact-induced switch in grammar. eventually, in 3 phonological articles, the writer discusses nasalization in Frisian, the putatively symmetrical vowel stock of Frisian, and the adaptation among schwa + sonorant consonants and syllabic sonorant consonants.
