De eerste jaren. Een persoonlijke geschiedenis
During the first years of my carreer in linguistics, the yearly GLOW-Colloquium was an important event and Dutch linguistics participated in this conference quite substantially. It symbolized the prominent position of theoretical, generative linguistics in the Netherlands in the last decades of the 20th century. The rise of theoretical linguistics cooccurred with my own carreer as a syntactician. In this contribution I compare my experiences of the early days of GLOW with the present state of theoretical linguistics in the Netherlands.
