Syntactic Atlas of the Dutch Dialects
Distributed for Amsterdam University Press
The Syntactic Atlas of the Dutch Dialects (SAND) provides a detailed overview of the surprisingly rich syntactic variation found in the 267 dialects of Dutch recorded at the beginning of the twenty-first century. More than 200 full-color maps illustrate the geographic distribution of over 100 syntactic variables, many of which are absent from the Dutch standard language. A state-of-the-art linguistic description accompanies each map, taking into account both modern syntactic research and historical developments. Volume II concentrates on the morphosyntactic variation in two and three-verb clusters, verb cluster interruption, the position of particles and “to” in verb clauses, auxiliary selection, do-insertion, negation, and qualification.
