Identification of Language Varieties
Three experiments are described investigating the role of different linguistic levels in the identification of language varieties. The results reveal that prosodic features play a minor role in the… Expand
Perceptive evaluation of Levenshtein dialect distance measurements using Norwegian dialect data
The Levenshtein dialect distance method has proven to be a successful method for measuring phonetic distances between Dutch dialects. The aim of the present investigation is to validate the… Expand
The Contribution of Linguistic Factors to the Intelligibility of Closely Related Languages
- Charlotte Gooskens
- 15 November 2007
The three mainland Scandinavian languages (Danish, Swedish and Norwegian) are so closely related that the speakers mostly communicate in their own languages (semicommunication). Even though the three… Expand
Gabmap – A web application for dialectology.
Gabmap 2 is a web application aimed especially to facilitat e explorations in quantitative dialectology — or dialectometry — by enabling researchers in dialectology to conduct computersupported explorations and calculations even if the y have relatively little computational expertise. Expand
Evaluation of String Distance Algorithms for Dialectology
We examine various string distance measures for suitability in modeling dialect distance, especially its perception. We find measures superior which do not normalize for word length, but which are… Expand

Travel time as a predictor of linguistic distance
- Charlotte Gooskens
The aim of the present investigation 1 was to get an impression of the geographic influences on the dialectal variation in a country. In previous investigations, the correlations between linguistic… Expand

- 1 November 2010
We define speech intelligibility as the ensemble of properties that allow a native listener of the language to correctly recognize the linguistic units (such as phonemes, syllables, morphemes and words) in the order they were produced by the speaker of the utterance. Expand
Conditional Entropy Measures Intelligibility among Related Languages
The Scandinavian languages are so alike that their speakers often communicate, each using their own language, which Haugen (1966) dubbed SEMICOMMUNICATION. Expand
