Abstract:

German and Dutch verb constructions show a rich array of syntactic
phenomena that have so far been underexposed in the literature,
despite the fact that they have proved to be a source of substantial
problems in theoretical grammar. The cross-linguistic study of verb
constructions and complementation has been dominated by views deriving
from English or, for that matter, Latin. The German and Dutch
complementation systems, however, feature several important properties
that are missing from English but occur in many other
languages. Well-known but only partially understood examples are
clause-final verb clusters and the so-called Third Construction. In
the present book, these and related phenomena are addressed by leading
representatives of various schools of linguistic thought, in
particular Head-driven Phrase Structure Grammar (HPSG), Generative
Grammar, Lexical Functional Grammar (LFG), Tree Adjoining Grammar
(TAG), Performance Grammar, and Semantic Syntax. By bringing together
the diverse theoretical analyses into one volume, the editors hope to
stimulate comparative evaluations of the formalisms.
