Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The biennial conference produced 15 papers in 1997. Their topics include heads and tails of Dutch spoken words, empirical pragmatics, the topicalization in Modern Dutch, the order of constituents, diachronic subjectification, Dutch and Polish in multilingual dictionaries of the 16th to 18th centuries, the use and abuse of social history in the history of the language, and the status of Afrikaans after apartheid. Apparently three years was not sufficient time to prepare an index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
