Samenvatting

Verhagen’s thesis on the relative order of nominal arguments and sentence
adverbials in the middle field of the clause argued that the order variation
found in Dutch can be described in a more insightful way within a functional
approach than within a formal, generative grammar. This was true in the
1980s, when generative grammar was concerned with competence only. In
current generative grammar, however, the output of the computational
system is interpreted and filtered by the performance systems, which opens
the possibility of formally accounting for certain aspects of meaning and
intonation. I will argue that this refutes Verhagen’s claim.
