Verb-second in embedded clauses without a complementiser (NCV2s)
quickinfo

CV2 is the abbreviation that is used for the construction featuring a clause introduced by a Complementiser (C) followed by Verb-Second (V2). CV2s are not syntactically integrated in the superordinate clause in which they are found, so they are unintegrated (U). Correspondingly, we will henceforth refer to CV2s as UCV2s, while noting that ICV2s (Integrated CV2s) are not found in Frisian.

Embedded clauses without a complementiser and with V2 (NCV2s) display all the syntactic properties of main clauses. However, unlike UCV2s, they allow of some forms of quantification, and unlike UCV2s, they are not sensitive to linearity. NCV2s occur in the same superordinate structures in which UCV2s were also attested.
