This book establishes new criteria for defining the German linguistic landscape. Several spatio-structural analyses are devoted to describing and explaining phenomena of linguistic geography and historical processes, such as the reconciliation of dialects during and since the 19th century. The result is a data-driven model of historical dialects that contributes to our understanding of the dynamics of language. By linking the analysis to extra-linguistic factors, it also serves as a structural bridge for cultural scholars working in other disciplines.
