This chapter will discuss nominal projections that contain two nouns without it being obvious which of the two nouns is to be considered the head of the construction. Section 4.1 will discuss noun phrases of the type een paar boeken'a couple of books', in which two nouns may occur adjacently, without an intervening preposition. Section 4.2 will discuss binominal constructions that do require the presence of a preposition, such as the N of a N construction een schat van een kind'a treasure of a child', in which the preposition van obligatorily intervenes between the two noun phrases.
