A special issue of Languages (ISSN 2226-471X).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (1 December 2019) | Viewed by 18529
The study of dialects from several perspectives and using different methods currently arouses the interest of scholars who work on different aspects of geolinguistics and dialectology concerned with grammatical, lexical, phonetic and phonological features that correspond to regional areas.
The aim of this Special Issue is to bring together current research focusing on the field of dialectology and geolinguistics. We particularly welcome contributions that are involved with regional, social or historical variation in language, with exploitation and diffusion of dialect sources (atlases, dictionaries and corpora), and with technologies or methodologies that can be applied to the investigation of quantitative dialectal data. We also invite researchers who develop approaches related to dialect contact, dialectal ideologies and perception, and who offer new insights regarding methods and techniques in dialectology.
