Abstract:

Dutch is a West-Germanic language closely related to English and German, but its special properties have long aroused interest and debate among students of syntax. This is an informative guide to the syntax of Dutch, offering an extensive survey of both the phenomena of Dutch syntax and their theoretical analyses over the years. In particular the book discusses those aspects of Dutch syntax that have played an important role in the development of syntactic theory in recent decades. Presupposing only a basic knowledge of syntax and complete with an extensive bibliography, this survey will be an important tool for students and linguists of all theoretical persuasions, and for anyone working in Germanic linguistics, linguistic typology and linguistic theory.

Part I. Introduction: 1. Dutch: the language, its history, its dialects; 2. Basic morphosyntax; 3. Perspectives on Dutch syntax; Part II. Description: 4. Clause structure; 5.

Verb clusters; 12. Nominal and prepositional phrases; 13. Binding and control.
