An example of the relativization of an adverbial of manner is provided below.

Example 1

Mear manieren om it probleem te oerwinnen ha wy net fûn
more ways for the problem to overcome have we not found
More ways to overcome the problem, we did not find

It is clear from the contrast below that a manner PP as a whole is the target of relativization, and not a manner NP:

Example 2

a. Wy oerwinne it probleem op dy manier
we overcome the problem in that way
We overcome the problem in that way
b. *Wy oerwinne it probleem dy manier
we overcome the problem that way
We overcome the problem that way
