TitleInteractive Visualization of Dialectal Lexis Perspective of Research Using the Example of Georgian Electronic Dialect Atlas
AbstractThis article presents a report of the results on the current situation in the development of two projects. These are (1) “The Large Georgian Dialect Lexicographic Database and the Georgian Electronic Dialect Atlas” and (2) “A Georgian Language Island in a Trans-Ethnic Area (GLITEA)”. In the first project, the lexicographical component of the Georgian dialect corpus will be expanded and visualized cartographically. The second project examines the dialect of the Georgian – Fereydanian – spoken in Iran by the descendants of about 100 thousand Georgians, who were forcibly evacuated from east Georgia to Iran by Shah Abbas I in the period 1614 to 1616. The dialect is a typical case of a language island and offers the possibility for diverse linguistic research into language history, language contacts and language migration.
