Workshop 1. What is a ‘dialect’? What is ‘dialectology’? (28th September)

The first workshop will start with a discussion on what ‘dialect’ and ‘dialectology’ are. Linguists have been arguing what a ‘dialect’ is for a long time and it seems like even until now, no one has an answer. How do dialectologists get over this problem? ‘Dialectology’ is also not really taught at universities, what has happened to the discipline? Has it ‘transformed’ into something else? What counts as dialectology nowadays? After the discussion, we will look at the development of dialectology from its early days up to the present day.
