4. Dialectometry Beyond Classification (9 April)

Dialectometrical methods are often used for dialect classification, but it can do much more than that! One of these uses includes the application in sociolinguistics; we can look at whether political borders have any impact on dialects, as well as looking at dialect change and the formation of regiolects. Other uses of dialectometry also include tracing the origin of dialects and exploring the regularity of sound changes.
