Strukturen im Sprachraum
Analysen zur arealtypologischen Komplexität der Dialekte in Deutschland
[Structures within the Language Area: An Analysis of Regional Typological Complexity in Germany’s Dialects]
Series:Linguistik - Impulse & Tendenzen 54
Aims and Scope
This book establishes new criteria for defining the German linguistic landscape. The spatio-structural analyses result in 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.
