Embedded imperatives: Empirical evidence from Colloquial German
Abstract

Abstract:

We offer experimental data from Colloquial German that involve imperative morphology in speech reports and in the scope of wh -elements. We confirm two independent restrictions on these phenomena, whose statistical significance provides evidence for the existence of embedded imperatives in Colloquial German in general.
