The Morphological Atlas of the Dutch Dialects (MAND presents the morphological formations in the Dutch (and Frisian) dialects at the end of the twentieth century in two volumes. There exists an enormous differentiation of morphological forms in a rather small linguistic area: the area where Netherlandic and Frisian dialects are spoken within the states ofthe Netherlands and Belgium. These dialects differ considerably from Standard Dutch by different word endings, different stem vowels (shortened, lengthened and umlauted vowels) and tonal contrasts. The MAND is based on data acquired in fieldwork from 1979-2000, a collaborative effort of linguists from the Netherlands and Belgium. This second, and last, volume deals with the following subjects: the grades of comparison of adjectives, the possessive pronouns, the personal pronouns subject, personal pronouns object, the endings of the present and past tense of strong and weak verbs, participle prefix, and stem forms of strong verbs. Each chapter has a general section followed by separate explanations for individual maps. There are three types of maps: the larger maps mainly represent suffixal variation; the smaller maps are reserved for tonal contrasts or other details and follow the main maps of each chapter. This volume has also maps on which information is generalized. The maps show also the likeliness of forms with those of Standard Dutch.
