Abstract

The Syntactic Atlas of Dutch Dialects (SAND, volume 2; Barbiers, van der Auwera, Bennis, Boef, De Vogelaer en Van der Ham 2008) claims that Frisian has the Infinitivus-pro-Participio effect in clusters of three verbs, and, surprisingly, even in clusters of two verbs. It is argued here that both claims are wrong and that the claims are caused by an incorrect analysis of verbal endings in Frisian. More specifically, the occasional homophony in Frisian of the gerund with the past participle has been misinterpreted and both have been incorrectly analysed as verbal infinitives, because of their orthographical resemblance to Dutch infinitives.
