TitleThe Dictionary of Serbian Vernaculars in Vojvodina or how to keep dialect from oblivion
AbstractThe Dictionary of Serbian Vernaculars in Vojvodina (Rečnik srpskih govora Vojvodine) is the first regional dialectal dictionary of the Serbian language. It includes lexical material collected from about 250 locations in the northern Serbian province of Vojvodina, as well as the data from written sources of predominantly ethnological character. The basic intention in The Dictionary was, first, to present as comprehensive inventory of lexemes as possible (to the degree to which its card-catalogue is comprehensive), therefore not to differentiate lexemes. We accepted the standpoint that every word used in a vernacular also belongs to a dialect, regardless of its status in the standard language, thus deserving to be included in the dialectal dictionary, too. Second, the material was collected in the territory of Vojvodina as a whole, including the places with the Serbian population which belong to present Romania and Hungary.
