Syntax of Dutch: Coordination and Ellipsis

Hans Broekhuis, Norbert Corver

Research output: Book/ReportBookScientificpeer-review


This volume is the final one of the series 'Syntax of Dutch' and addresses issues relating to coordination. It contains three chapters. Chapter 1 discusses the syntactic and semantic properties of coordinate structures and their constituting elements, that is, the coordinators and the coordinands they link. Chapter 2 discusses the types of ellipsis known as conjunction reduction and gapping found in coordinate structures. Chapter 3 discusses elements seemingly exhibiting coordination-like properties, such as dan ‘than’ in comparative constructions like Jan is groter dan zij ‘Jan is taller than she’.
