DialectSyntax.org is a digital meeting place for researchers in the field
of micro-comparative syntax . Its general goal is to stimulate
international cooperation in the study of dialect syntax, which is a
rapidly growing field. The initiative for this website is taken by Edisyn,
an ESF-funded project which runs from 2005 - 2010 and is carried out at the
Meertens Institute. 

This website contains the following information: 
 - Links to research groups, institutes and researchers actively involved
in the study of dialect syntax. One can search for these links by country
or by dialect;
 - A manual for setting up and carrying out a large-scale dialect syntax
project, including protocols for transcribing and tagging dialect material.
 - Links to online papers on dialect syntax (Dialect Syntax Archive);
 - Links to past and future events on dialect syntax.
 - Descriptions of databases containing syntactic data on dialects as well
as links to databases which are available online.
If you want to be part of this network or if you know a dialect syntax
research group that could be added, please contact us. 

Still in development are the following parts: 
- A discussion forum.
- In the near future a 'blog' will be added which announces relevant news
items on dialect syntax, such as conference calls, conference programs,
publications, etc. The idea is that the Edisyn-team moderates this blog,
but that information can be uploaded by registered users.  

Feel free to send us an e-mail (edisyn @ meertens.knaw.nl) with comments
and/ or (more) information.

This website is hosted by the Meertens Institute and run by the
Edisyn-group (http://www.meertens.knaw.nl/projecten/edisyn/).
