Syntax of Dutch: Nouns and Noun Phrases (vols. 1, 2)
(Amsterdam University Press, 2013)
Syntax of Dutch is an extraordinary project that aims at presenting a synthesis of more than forty years of formal linguistic research on the Dutch language. Primarily concerned with language description and not with linguistic theory, the series will provide support to all researchers interested in the syntax of Dutch, including advanced students of language and linguistics. At least seven volumes are planned for publication by 2016. Three have already appeared: Adjectives and Adjective Phrases and Nouns and Phrases, a two-volume work that provides a dense yet highly organized description of the internal structure of the noun phrase as well as its external distribution within the clause. Topics include complementation and modification of noun phrases; properties of determiners (article, demonstratives), numerals, and quantifiers; and the use of noun phrases as arguments, predicates, and adverbial modifiers. Marcel den Dikken (Prof., GC) serves on the doctoral faculty in linguistics.
