Samenvatting

The Syntactic Atlas of Dutch Dialects (SAND) is a database
of syntactic features observed in the language spoken by
people from different dialect regions in The Netherlands
and Flanders. We would like to know how specific syntactic
features are for the different dialects. For this purpose
we try to generate dialect boundaries from the syntactic
data only. We show that a plausible binary division of the
dialect can successfully be derived but that is more difficult
to divide the data in three or more regions. We build on
earlier work by Nerbonne, Heeringa en Kleiweg (1999), who
performed this task for phonetic data, and on work by
Spruit (2008), who also attempted to identify dialect
regions from syntactic data.
