Open PhD student position, Spatio-Temporal Modeling of Dialect Change

The University Research Priority Program (URPP) Language and Space has a focus on communication, which is inevitably linked to geographical and social space. Choosing a language or regional variety allows us to identify with and distinguish ourselves from others. Understanding these choices, however, is far from straight-forward. The URPP approaches relations between language and space with cutting-edge technology, combining methods and insights from linguistics and geographic information science.
