7.2.2. Distribution of heel and its alternants inside the noun phrase
quickinfo

This section discusses the noun-phrase internal syntactic distribution of heel. We start with an investigation of the properties of the bare form heel preceding determiners in Section 7.2.2.1, which is followed by a discussion of post-determiner inflectible heel in Section 7.2.2.2. Section 7.2.2.3 concludes with a brief comparison between heel and its variant geheel prefixed by ge-. Quantificational heel sometimes alternates with the form gans, but this will not be discussed here since it is an archaic form, not found in the present-day vernacular. It is essentially obsolete, living on in the frozen phrase van ganser harte'wholeheartedly' (where it, in fact, does not alternate with heel).
