Meeting Description: 

Taal & Tongval is a journal on variation linguistics (i.e. regional, social,
pragmatic and historical variation) in the Low Countries

The upcoming yearly colloquium will be held in Ghent (Belgium) on the topic
'Dutch Verb Order Variation in a Broader Perspective'.


In the last decades, word order research into the distribution of the verb
patterns past participle - finite verb (the so-called 'green word order') and
the verb pattern finite verb - past participle (the so-called 'red word order')
has become one of the classical themes of Dutch variation linguistics. From the
fifties onwards, Dutch linguistics has proposed divergent language internal and
external factors that help to determine the (in principle) free choice between
both word order variants, such as:

-Regional variety (dialect - standard language, exogenous language usage)
-Stylistic variety (formal - informal, written - spoken, jargon)
-Accentuation of the verb cluster and surrounding constituents
-Morpho-syntactic analysis of the verb cluster and surrounding constituents

In the colloquium, we want to relate explicitly to this respected research
tradition, where the choice between the red and green order variant in actual
language usage is central.  In most of the publications, however, the variable
verb order has been studied in a relative isolation with an exclusive attention
to the factors which determine the order in the dual clusters in Standard Dutch.

Invited Speakers:

- Sjef Barbiers & Hans Bennis (The Meertens Institute)
- Gert De Sutter (University College Ghent)
- Susanne Wurmbrand (University of Connecticut)
