Subject: Dialect Syntax Database DynaSAND Open to All


On Thursday March 16, 2006, the Meertens Institute will launch the dialect
syntax database DynaSAND. At http://www.meertens.nl/sand/zoeken/ you find
data of 267 dialects of Dutch collected between 2000 and 2003 in the
Netherlands, Belgium and Northern France. The data include the original
sound files and transcriptions of oral interviews, as well as the results
of a postal and telephone survey. The database comes with a search engine
and a cartographic tool that enables the researcher to visualize search
results on maps. The database is particularly relevant for linguists
interested in the left periphery of the clause (e.g., complementizers,
complementizer agreement, relative clauses, Wh-clauses, subject pronouns
and subject pronoun doubling), the reflexive system, the verbal system and
negation.
