Embedded imperatives: Empirical evidence from Colloquial German

From: Language
Volume 89, Number 3, September 2013
pp. 619-637 | 10.1353/lan.2013.0050

We confirm two independent restrictions on these phenomena, whose statistical significance provides evidence for the existence of embedded imperatives in Colloquial German in general.
