Abstract:

"Structure is at the rock-bottom of all explanatory sciences" (Jan Koster).Forty years ago, the hypothesis that underlying the bewildering variety ofsyntactic phenomena are general and unified structural patterns ofunexpected beauty and simplicity gave rise to major advancements in thestudy of Dutch and Germanic syntax, with important implications for thetheory of grammar as a whole. Jan Koster was one of the central figures inthis development, and he has continued to explore the structure preservinghypothesis throughout his illustrious career. This collection of articlesby over forty syntacticians celebrates the advancements made in the studyof syntax over the past forty years, reflecting on the structuralprinciples underlying syntactic phenomena and emulating the approach tosyntactic analysis embodied in Jan Koster's teaching and research.
