I am planning to write a paper on the linguistic situation in Syria. I noticed that
people at the capital use different dialects at different situations. its not like
diglossia. people around here shift between dialects depending on the
situation/interlocutor and there seems no one High variety in contrast to many
low ones. I thought heteroglossia probably. Anyways. How to study this
situation? and what references/similar situations/ theories.. etc that relate to this
situation do you kindly suggest to me to get started with?
