Statistische Methoden in der historischen Regionalsprachenforschung

  • Brigitte Ganswindt Philipps-Universität Marburg


The article demonstrates how to reconstruct an oral historical variety by using modern methods. The phonetic-phonological phenomens of the Regional High German in the 19th century are presented for Segeberg (a town in the North Low German dialect area). Afterwards, the spatial structures of this historical prestigious variety are analysed using statistical methods (cluster analysis and implication analysis).
