It is therefore unfortunate that there is no recent comprehensive scientifically based description of the grammar of Dutch that is accessible to a wider international audience. The series (), which has become available as of the period 2012-6 in book form (Amsterdam University Press) as well as open access publications (, aims at filling this gap for syntax.
