Available in a Dutch and English Edition, the Syntactic Atlas of the Dutch Dialects (SAND) provides a detailed overview of the surprisingly rich syntactic variation found in 267 dialects of Dutch at the beginning of the 21th century. 200 full color maps show the geographic distribution of more than 100 syntactic variables. Many of these variables involve phenomena that are absent from the standard language and thus of great descriptive and theoretical importance. A state-of-the art linguistic commentary accompanies each map, taking into account the results of modern syntactic research, as well as historical developments. Volume I includes (a.o.) subject pronouns and pronoun doubling, the anaphoric system, expletive pronouns, complementizer agreement, yes/no agreement, complementizer doubling, question word doubling, relative clauses and topicalisation. Volume II (Fall 2006) includes (a.o.) word order in verb clusters, the Infinitivus pro Participio effect, the Participium pro Infinitivo effect, perfective participle doubling, the Imperative pro Infinitivo effect, DO-support, negative particles, negative concord and negative quantifiers.
