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

“This is a very good collection of squibs, most of which are on state-of-the-art issues in generative syntax. They are written in a clear and easy-to-follow way, which is a great achievement by the individual authors as well as the editors. The diversity of the topics in the squibs which take Koster’s work as a basis clearly shows how effective Koster has been in the generative grammar.”
