Title: Present-day Dialectology: Problems and Findings
Series Title: Trends in Linguistics. Studies and Monographs 137
Description:

Present-day Dialectology does not treat dialectology as an isolated discipline. Instead, it discusses dialectological topics within the framework of present-day linguistics. The book contains papers which seek to confront recent phonological, morphologic, syntactic and semantic theory with dialectological data. In addition, it explores the link between dialectology on the one hand and sociolinguistics and the study of language contact on the other. Therefore, this study is not only of interest to dialectologists, but also to sociolinguists, students of language contact as well as theoretical linguists in general.
