The Van Riemsdijk Foundation

Stimulating and advancing fundamental research into our knowledge of language (grammar), including language description, linguistic analysis, and linguistic theorizing.

“I believe that a broad (as opposed to narrow) interpretation of what syntax (and grammar more generally) is about should regain its full interest. That students and researchers should be encouraged to tackle difficult analytical problems and curious generalizations, study them from as many angles as possible, in particular study their similarities and differences in broad varieties of languages, both at the micro- and macro-level, and wherever possible formulate hypotheses on the fundamental abstract principles that account for them.”
