The Dutch right periphery

Hei-hei,

as far as I know, you can say something like (1) in Dutch:

(1) Ik heb toen een man gezien, gisteren.

Would it also be possible to say (2) or (3), or would that be odd, and to what extent?

(2) Ik heb gisteren een man gezien, toen.

(3) Ik heb gisteren een man gezien, gisteren.

Thanks for your judgements in advance!

Best regards,
Andreas

I think they all sound quite odd! But when you speak of course word order is less strict than normal.

Motivation: little.

Corrections appreciated.

I would say both (1) and (3) are possible. (2) doesn't make sense to me. (1) is the most natural one, "toen" being specified in a second statement ("gisteren"). (3) is just saying the same word twice, as it is normal in colloquial speech.

I think (1) is pretty normal in spoken language. (2) is weird. (3) is, uhm, possible.. but redundant. (obviously :P ) The situation that arises in my head is when you've mispronounced the first 'gisteren', or you're not sure the other person heard it for some reason, or you suddenly forgot whether or not you actually said it and decide to repeat it just in case.. something like that.
