Project Website

The Syntactic Atlas of Welsh Dialects is a project to establish the extent of variation in the syntax of present-day Welsh, including age-related variation and variation due to linguistic background, as well as geogrpahical variation. Specifically, its aims are to establish the distribution of major syntactic variants in Welsh using a systematic methodology, to establish patterns of change via age-related variation, to examine the effects of language revitalisation on the syntax of Welsh, to provide material for further analysis of Welsh syntax in any framework, and to provide a repository of material available for researchers and the general public interested in any kind of variation within the Welsh language as spoken today.
