Politische Grenzen – Sprachliche Grenzen?
Are Political Boundaries Language Boundaries? Dialectological and Perceptual Dialectological Perspectives in the German-Speaking Area

Dialektgeographische und wahrnehmungsdialektologische Perspektiven im deutschsprachigen Raum

Edited by: Nicole Palliwoda, Verena Sauer,  and Stephanie Sauermilch
Dialectology studies boundaries and isoglosses along with the demarcation between dialects. Here, natural and legal boundaries each play a part. The volume combines several strands of research on the theme “Language and Boundaries.” It focuses especially on four thematic areas: dialect geography, language dynamics, language contact, and multilingualism, along with perceptual dialectology.
