Bulgarian dialectology as a living tradition

Posted by Quinn Dombrowski on August 2, 2011

This project features transcriptions, translations, and a linguistic analysis of conversations with people from rural Bulgaria collected in the field during the 1990's and 2000's. Excerpts from the conversations are transcribed, along with full linguistic glosses. Users can also listen to and download mp3's of the source data. Salient dialectal traits are highlighted, and texts are also tagged for salient cultural traits. All word forms from the conversations have been aggregated into a glossary, and maps showing the distribution of linguistic and cultural traits are available.
