Research output: Chapter in book/volumeChapterScientificpeer-review


This chapter provides an overview of computational work in dialectology. This chapter is written for computational linguists, so that we will focus less on the technical details of exploiting the computer in research on dialects (which is documented in the articles we cite) but rather more on background assumptions and emerging issues and opportunities.
