Abstract

The grammar of Frisian contains split infinitival phrases, the so-called third construction. In this paper, we present, following Neeleman 1990, theoretical and empirical evidence that a scrambling analysis of this construction should be rejected. Instead of scrambling, we present distributional evidence for an analysis of the third construction that makes use of <i>te</i>+V-raising.
