The award-winning Syntactic Atlas of Dutch Dialects, 'Syntactische Atlas van de Nederlandse Dialecten, abbreviated as SAND (volume 1) features the latest results of a dialect survey spanning The Netherlands and Dutch (Flemish) speaking Belgium. On the one hand, I will point out research which can be done with the material that has already been collected within the SAND project, but which must be dug out and analysed. An example of this type of research involves testing the hypothesis of Hoekstra & Smits (1997, 1998) on complementiser agreement (section 1.2). On the other hand, I will point out research which entails sending out new questions to informants, hence a continuation of the SAND. An example of this is given in section 4.1. on reciprocals with singular antecedents.
