Editor: Ton Goeman Editor: Marc van Oostendorp Editor: Piet van Reenen Editor: Oele Koornwinder Editor: Boudewijn van den Berg Editor: A. van Reenen Hardback: ISBN: 9789053567753 Pages: Price: U.S. $ 140.00
Abstract:

The dialects of Dutch do not only differ from Standard Dutch in their wordsand sounds, but also in the way they build their words (morphology) andsentences (syntax). The Morphological Atlas of the Dutch Dialects (MAND)and the Syntactic Atlas of the Dutch Dialects (SAND) provide a descriptionof the surprisingly rich morphological and syntactic variation in the Dutchlanguage area (i.e. The Netherlands, Dutch speaking Belgium and north westFrance) and present this variation on maps. The first volume of theseatlases appeared in 2005. The second and final volume appears today. Thisis the completion of a unique project of the Meertens Institute (Amsterdam)and the University of Ghent that started in 1979.

Together with the Phonological Atlas of the Dutch Dialects (FAND; threevolumes) that has already appeared, MAND and SAND constitute a triptychwithout precedent. There is no other language area in the world for whichsuch a systematic, extensive and detailed description of grammaticalvariation and its geographic distribution exists. This description is veryimportant for research into the structure of natural language and forresearch into the history of the Dutch language area and Dutch.

MAND I presents the variation in plural formation, diminutives andgrammatical gender. MAND 2 provides the variation in comparative andsuperlative formation, possessive, subject and object pronouns and verbalinflection.
