Résumé A number of Belgian Dutch dialects feature elliptical sentences of the type ?X + that-clause?, with X an adverb or adjective: Misschien da Kris komt ?It is perhaps the case that Kris comes? (lit. perhaps that Kris comes). I claim that this construction involves a type of IP-ellipsis on a par with an analysis of sluiced clefts proposed by Van Craenenbroeck (2004). Their underlying structure corresponds to Het is misschien zo da Kris komt ?It is perhaps the case that Kris comes? (lit. it is perhaps so that Kris comes).
