In this series we aim at making the analytical results of grammatical research that have multiplied in the explosive growth of the linguistic research of the past decades available in a systematic way in the form of large (multivolume) scientific grammars of specific languages.

With the appearance of the fifth and sixth volumes of the Syntax of Dutch, authored by Hans Broekhuis and several collaborators, the first of these grammars is nearing completion – a seventh and last volume is expected to appear in 2016. The Syntax of Dutch marks a giant leap forward in grammar writing. It makes available a wealth of information about the structure of the Dutch language in ways that are not hidden behind or obscured by the theorizing of the primary literature. The information contained in these grammar books is many times richer than the information contained in more traditional grammars. These volumes are published, both as hardcover books and electronically, in English and thereby accessible to the international linguistic community.

Projects are under way to achieve similarly extensive scientific works of grammar on Hungarian, Mandarin Chinese and a number of other languages.
