4.1. Binominal constructions without a preposition
quickinfo

This section discusses binominal constructions in which the two nouns may or must occur adjacently, that is, without a preposition connecting the two. Section 4.1.1 will discuss constructions such as een paar boeken'a couple of books', in which the first noun quantifies the latter. Section 4.1.2 continues with the apparently similar non-quantificational construction een soort boek'a kind of book'. Section 4.1.3 concludes with an overview of several other types of binominal constructions.
