In this article I investigate the internal syntax of Dutch nominal expressions like twee slangen van elk twee meter (two snakes of each two meter). The preposition van separates the quantifier elk from the expression twee slangen to which it is connected interpretatively. From a purely… read more | Article
This paper presents a micro-comparative perspective on the Dutch wat voor ’n N-construction (meaning: “what kind of N”).

The fi rst instance… read more | Chapter
