Verschenen: Syntax of Dutch. Verbs and Verb Phrases, Volume 1 &2

In februari 2015 verschijnen twee nieuwe delen van Syntax of Dutch, het zevendelige naslagwerk dat zich richt op één enkel kernaspect van de Nederlandse grammatica: de syntaxis (de leer van de zinsbouw en woordgroepen).
Tot dusver verschenen vier delen. De eerste twee behandelen de zelfstandig naamwoorden en zelfstandignaamwoordgroepen, het derde deel behandelt de bijvoeglijk naamwoorden en bijvoeglijk naamwoordgroepen, en het vierde deel gaat over voorzetsels en voorzetselgroepen. Nu verschijnen de eerste delen twee delen over werkwoorden en werkwoordgroepen, geschreven door Hans Broekhuis, Norbert Corver en Riet Vos. In april 2016 volgt nog een derde deel over dit onderwerp.
Hieronder volgt de (Engelstalige) aankondiging:
Hans Broekhuis, Norbert Corver & Riet Vos. Syntax of Dutch. Verbs and Verb Phrases, Volume 1 & 2. Amsterdam University Press
The Syntax of Dutch presents a synthesis of the currently available syntactic knowledge of Dutch. It is primarily concerned with language description and not with linguistic theory, and provides support to all researchers interested in matters relating to the syntax of Dutch, including advanced students of language and linguistics.
So far four volumes have appeared On Nouns, adjectives and adposition. On February, 17, 2015, the series is supplemented by two volumes: a third volume will follow in April 2016, which will conclude the series (at least for the moment). The new volumes on verbs are organized in a similar way as the previously released volumes. Volume 1 opens with a general introduction to verbs, including a review of various verb classifications and discussions on inflection, tense, mood, modality and aspect. This is followed by a comprehensive discussion of complementation (argument structure and verb frame alternations). Volume 2 continues the discussion of complementation, but is more specifically focused on clausal complements: the reader will find detailed discussions of finite and infinitival argument clauses, complex verb constructions and verb clustering. Volume 3 concludes the discussion with a description of adverbial modification and the overall structure of clauses in relation to word order (e.g., verb placement, wh-movement. extraposition phenomena, scrambling, etc.).

The Syntax of Dutch appears in hardcover with Amsterdam University Press en is also available as a (free) open access publication via In order to celebrate the publication of the two new volumes, AUP gives a discount of 15 % on all volumes (as well as free shipping) from February 7 until March 1, 2015, if ordered from the AUP-website with the use of discount code SyntaxOfDutch2015.
