I tend to think that this use of the alternative word order in Turkish is not just syntactically motivated, but that it is also related to the asymmetrical contact setting (without reference to the concept of matrix language in a particular discourse setting). Thus, structures like (2) and (3) are predicted not to occur in a contact setting in which Turkish would be the dominant language and Dutch (German) the immigrant language.
