Chapter 6. The Imperativus-pro-Infinitivo
In this paper, we study the internal and external structure of a Frisian syntactic construction which consists of two parts, the second part being introduced by the element <i>en</i> ‘and’ followed by a moved verb form. As to the external structure, we argue that the generally accepted distinction of this construction in a coordinated type and a subordinated type has to be replaced with two types of subordination. This analysis opens a perspective on the historical development of this construction that does not have to call upon an <i>a priori</i> implausible form of grammatical reconstruction. As to the internal structure, we give special attention to a possible approach of the way the implicit subject of the construction is identified.
