Abstract:

Topics in Dialectal Variation concentrates on studies that represent new
methodological solutions to, or fresh perspectives into, the study of
linguistic variation. The papers range from new applications of diffusion
studies, through perceptual dialectology and folk linguistics, to
innovative methods used in statistical linguistics and language technology.
Problems of language planning are also discussed, and some of the studies
presented here make use of theoretical and methodological approaches of
neighbouring disciplines ending up with cross-disciplinary applications.
