Arie Verhagen (1951, PhD 1986) . He received his PhD at the Free University in Amsterdam. From his dissertation work onwards, he has been especially interested in joining the study of grammar to the study of language use in discourse. He has taught at the Free University, Utrecht University, and Leiden University. His publications include the following books: Linguistic Theory and the Function of Word Order in Dutch (Foris/Mouton de Gruyter, 1986), Usage-Based Approaches to Dutch (LOT, 2003, co-edited with Jeroen van de Weijer), Constructions of Intersubjectivity. Discourse, Syntax, and Cognition (Oxford University Press, 2005; extended paperback edition 2007). He also published a Dutch introduction to linguistics for secondary schools (Taalkunde voor het VWO, Amsterdam University Press, 2006, with two co-authors). He was editor of the major Dutch linguistics journal Nederlandse taalkunde (and one of its predecessors) from 1981 until 1999, and editor-in-chief of the journal Cognitive Linguistics from 1996 until 2004. His research focuses on relations between language use and language structure, synchronically and diachronically, in a usage-based, evolutionary approach to construction grammar.
