I have the following from here:


By context, I understood it as

In this article, while providing the most recent pictures and information about Tsukiji market, ...

but I'm not too sure how the grammar works. I've referred to another post on double を, which suggests that I might parse the phrase as

築地情報を[ 写真を[して] ]交えつつ

Yet, I would think that if 交えつつ refers to two nouns, it would be through the と particle instead, so


Is this another common double-を pattern that's different from what was listed in the linked post?

  • 「軽食や朝ごはんが食べられる[店]{てん}」 → 「~食べられる[店]{みせ}」って読みます – Chocolate Aug 7 '20 at 13:37

This 交えつつ is not かえつつ but まじえつつ. まじえる means something like "to mix/intersperse", and you can say 冗談を交えながら話す ("to talk with jokes"), 雑談を交えつつ会議は進んだ, etc. Here 写真を交えつつ means "using some pictures as well" on its own, and it adverbially modifies 紹介します.

The rest of the sentence is broken. 紹介します somehow has two を-marked objects, namely "最新の築地情報" and "築地でオススメの寿司レストラン、軽食や朝ごはんが食べられる店、また訪日客向けツアーやアクセス情報", but this is ungrammatical in standard formal sentences, just as リンゴをバナナを食べる is wrong. I guess this sentence was initially 最新の築地情報を(写真を交えつつ)ご紹介します, which was perfectly fine, but the writer messed it up while trying to augment it.

最新の築地情報写真を交えつつ doesn't make sense, either, because that would make the sentence like 築地情報を交えつつ築地情報をご紹介します, which is nonsense. The AをBに construction is not relevant either because there is no に.

The corrected version would be:

  • 本記事では、写真を交えつつ、築地でオススメの寿司レストラン、軽食や朝ごはんが食べられる店、また訪日客向けツアーやアクセス情報などの最新の築地情報をご紹介します。
  • 本記事では、最新の築地の写真を交えつつ、築地でオススメの寿司レストラン、軽食や朝ごはんが食べられる店、また訪日客向けツアーやアクセス情報などをご紹介します。
