Lexical variation and lectal variation

ErstbetreuerDirk Speelman

Abstract

My research focuses on multilectal lexical variation. There are two main aspects to my project. First, as I focus on lexical variation, I need to get a grip on the lexical semantic ideas of word meaning. Second, on a methodological level, I apply an existing, yet not linguistically applied MDS flavor to large scale corpus-based case studies.
