Die e-Apokope im Ripuarischen
The Schwa Apocope in the Ripuarian Dialect: A Corpus Linguistic Study of Late Middle High German and Early New High German Sources

Eine korpuslinguistische Untersuchung spätmittelhochdeutscher und frühneuhochdeutscher Quellen

The study fills a long-existing gap by investigating the schwa apocope in the Ripuarian dialect, whose origin can be dated by the concurrent phonologization of the tonal accent. While the schwa apocope is largely obscured in the written language because of increasing conservatism in writing, it is possible to successfully date it. In this connection, important hints are provided by morphological class changes and switches.
