Meeting Description: Methods XV - University of Groningen

In a world of virtual communication and increasing opportunities for
geographical mobility, both the basis for linguistic variation and the types of
variation that are frequently encountered are hanging. The field of dialectology
is also hanging - therefore, the theme for the 15th edition of Methods in
Dialectology is 'The Future of dialects'. One of the aims of the conference is
to bring traditional approaches to dialectology together with the latest
advances in data collection technologies, new analysis instruments, and new
interpretations of the concept of 'dialect'.

Methods in Dialectology is a triennial conference that alternates between
Canada and Europe. Methods XV will be held at the University of Groningen
from Monday, 11 August to Friday, 15 August 2014. We are proud to
