Series Title: Linguistik Aktuell/Linguistics Today 161
Description:

In this volume, Germen de Haan gives a multi-faceted view of the syntax,
sociolinguistics, and phonology of West-Frisian. The author discusses
distinct aspects of the syntax of verbs in Frisian: finiteness and Verb
Second, embedded root phenomena, the verbal complex, verbal
complementation, and complementizer agreement. Because Frisian has minority
language status and is of interest to sociolinguists, the author reviews
the linguistic changes in Frisian under the influence of the dominant Dutch
language and, more generally, reflects on how to deal with contact-induced
change in grammar. Finally, in three phonological articles, the author
discusses nasalization in Frisian, the putatively symmetrical vowel
inventory of Frisian, and the variation between schwa + sonorant consonants
and syllabic sonorant consonants.
