Bylderup is a rural village in a traditional dialect speaking area of Southern Jutland and Vollsmose is a poly-ethnic suburban neighbourhood south of Odense on the island of Fiona.
The aim of the project is to compare the language use of the adolescents in these areas. Among our research interests are the extent of local dialect use and its correlation to attitudes and orientations to local place.
About the project
The project will contribute to the theoretical development of language variation and place in sociolinguistics and modern dialectology and will serve to develop and test new methods for the investigation of linguistic practice.
