Syntax of Dutch, a major linguistic research project currently based at the Meertens Institute Amsterdam, will be published in at least seven volumes over the period 2012-2016. The work is co-authored and edited by Hans Broekhuis. The aim of this publication is to present a synthesis of the available knowledge of Dutch syntax. It is primarily concerned with language description and not with linguistic theory, providing support to all researchers of language and linguistics, including advanced students. The first two volumes in this series, "Nouns and Noun Phrases", were published in 2012 (see lingbuzz/001638) and are now also available as open access publication at A new volume, "Adjectives and Adjective phrases", appears in March/April 2013. It discusses the internal make-up as well as the distribution of adjective phrases. Topics that will be covered include: complementation and modification of adjective phrases; comparative and superlative formation, and the syntactic uses of adjective phrases. Special attention is paid to the so-called partitive genitive construction and the adverbial use of past/passive participles and infinitives.
