years. There will be a particular focus on the study of syntactic
variation, both from a sociolinguistic and a broader dialectological
perspective, and the teachers have all been recruited from ongoing
dialect syntax projects. Each teacher will give two lectures of
approximately two hours.

details, please consult the announcement on the homepage of the
Scandinavian Dialect Syntax Project (ScanDiaSyn,

November 1.
