Linguistics in the Netherlands

Linguistics in the Netherlands is the peer-reviewed journal of the AVT. From 2024, it will continue as Nota Bene.

Linguistics in the Netherlands is a series of annual publications, sponsored by the Dutch Linguistics Association and published by John Benjamins since Volume 8 in 1991. Each volume contains a peer-reviewed selection of papers presented at the Dutch Annual Linguistics Day. AVT members have direct online access to the new edition, and if requested will receive a printed copy by mail.

The editors of LIN 2023 (AVT 40) were Sterre Leufkens and Marco Bril. It consists of articles based on presentations at the 53rd and 54th Dutch Annual Linguistics Day.
