Global Syntactic Variation in Seven Languages: Towards a Computational Dialectology

[Read full-text] Abstract The goal of this paper is to provide a complete representation of regional linguistic variation on a global scale. To this end, the paper focuses on removing three constraints that have previously limited work within dialectology/dialectometry. First, rather than assuming a fixed and incomplete set of variants, we use Computational Construction Grammar … More Global Syntactic Variation in Seven Languages: Towards a Computational Dialectology
