Book Information


Title: "Perceptual Dialectology"
Subtitle: Neue Wege der Dialektologie
Edited By: Christina Ada Anders
Markus Hundt
Alexander Lasch
Series Title: Neue Wege der Dialektologie

Perceptual dialectology is concerned with subjective, non-specialist, naïve
perspectives of German and the role they play in day-to-day social interaction.
What do non-specialists in linguistics think about dialects and their speakers?
What cognitive maps do they have of these dialects? What attitudes do they
have towards the dialects and their speakers? Do non-specialists in linguistics
associate particular features with the dialects or perceive them in a special way?
The book contains the latest research findings on this subject.
