Nordic Syntax Database
The database consists of judgments by 924 Nordic dialect speakers from 207 places to a list of sentences that illustrate various syntactic phenomena. Many of the speakers are the same in both database and corpus. The sentences have been given grades, and on the basis of this, dialet maps can be generated, and isoglosses drawn. The judgments can be sorted and filtered in many ways according to place, age, sex of informants or type of syntactic phenomenon.
