Methodology

So far, there is no full-text search for the entries published under methodology. However, such a full-text search is planned and under development and will be available in one of the next versions of VerbaAlpina. In the meantime, the full-text search of the browser (usually Ctrl+F) can be used instead, after clicking on "Show all entries".

Language

The surface of this portal will be available in several standard languages, namely (in alphabetical order) in English, French, German, Italian, Rhaeto-Romanic (Rumantsch Grischun) and Slovenian. In the case of German, Swiss and Austrian standard variants are possible depending on the author of the text. Regardless of the chosen language the user always has access to all linguistic material in all recorded dialects and languages.

Language Contact

There are two completely different types of language contact (to which variety contact also belongs) depending on their status of integration to the linguistic system. They can be fixed and integrated elements of the language, independent of the speaker ('loan words') – on the level of the linguistic system – or – on the level of the speaker – individual phenomena. These can be either habitual or occasional uses, so-called switchings. This reservation has also to be taken into account when interpreting older atlas materials where an informant provides a form close to the standard language or, in bilingual areas, a form of the respective second language. The theoretically fundamental difference is more or less likely in view of the linguistic data, but it is, however, actually never evident. Only the increase of informants, which becomes a quite realistic option with social media, promises us reliable information about this point.
