The past thirty years or so have seen an increased interest from the part of generative syntacticians in dialect data. The article addresses the question to what extent generative methods in studying dialect syntax depart from traditional dialectological methods, and whether both disciplines have been integrated successfully. Despite earlier pessimistic accounts like De Schutter (2005) and Goossens & Van Keymeulen (2006), Hans Bennis’ recent work shows that generative syntacticians are indeed adopting methods from dialect geography to tackle research questions that are still predominantly generative in nature.
