NWO has awarded funding from the programme Internationalisation in the Humanities to seven researchers. This concerns projects in which a Dutch humanities research group collaborates with at least two foreign humanities research groups.
The aim of this programme is to facilitate collaboration between Dutch humanities researchers and their foreign colleagues and to strengthen the formation of international networks.
Partitive elements such as the Dutch 'er' (ik heb er drie) or the French 'du' (du pain) are difficult to comprehend for people who learn a second language. Why do some European languages have this in the first place? Fifteen experts from seven European countries will develop a uniform research method to approach this.
