3.5.Bibliographical notes

This chapter has profited much from the seminal work on verb alternations in Levin (1993), and Levin & Rappaport (1995), as well as the research survey in Levin & Rappaport (2005). Although there is a great deal of (older and newer) work on incidental cases of verb alternations like passive, dative shift, and, to a lesser extent, middle formation, similar reference works are not available for Dutch, although Van Hout (1996:ch.2) provides an overview of a number of common cases.
