Title: The morphosyntax of BrE dialects in a corpus-based dialectometrical perspective: feature extraction, coding protocols, projections to geography, summary statistics

Abstract: Recent and forthcoming Freiburg-based dialectometrical research investigates aggregate morphosyntactic variability in dozens of traditional British English dialects drawing on a measure of joint dialectal distance. This measure is calculated on the basis of a catalogue spanning 57 morphosyntax features (e.g.would as marker of habitual past, never as past tense negator,don't with 3rd p erson singular subjects, and so on) whose text frequencies were established through querying the Freiburg Corpus of English Dialects.This document details the technicalities of the feature extraction process, and the coding protocols underpinning it. The discussion also encompasses cartographic projections of feature frequency distributions, as well as some summary statistics.
