This article argues that certain forms of scrambling of nominal objects should be analyzed in a similar way as so-called object shift in the Scandinavian languages. The differences between the intended form of scrambling and object shift (as well as the differences concerning object shift between the individual Scandinavian languages) will be accounted for by appealing to an optimality-theoretic evaluation of the output representations of the computational system postulated by the minimalist program.
