Abstract

Abstract

This review article discusses Lotte Dros-Hendriks’ PhD thesis (2018). A ground-breaking book, as it provides a simple, principled account for the geographical distribution of the various word orders found in so-called ‘verb’ clusters in the Dutch dialects. It will be shown, however, that the account is based on a number of controversial and insufficiently motivated premises. This article raises a number of potential problems for these premises, which should find a satisfactory solution before we can wholeheartedly adopt the core insights provided by this interesting work.
