|Phonetics and Phonology of Swedish Dialects around the Year 2000
|The 1-2 minute excerpt transcribed here is taken from a longer stretch of 20-30 minutes of predominantly spontaneous speech. The form is interview-like, but the explicit aim of the collector is to record as long stretches of monologic speech from the consultant's side as possible, interfering only with discrete, mostly non-verbal feedback. There were no restrictions whatsoever on the subjects. A third person was usually present and managing the recording equipment, but without interfering in any other way. The recordings were made in the consultant's home environment. Date of recording given is guaranteed to be correct only for year.
|Abstract Phonetic and phonological data on todayâ��s Swedish dialects are scarce. The aim of this project is to record and analyze comparable speech samples from about 110 dialect areas. A central goal is to establish phonetic and phonological typologies on the basis of segmental and prosodic characteristics. The project which is scheduled to be carried out during 1998-2003 is a collaboration between the phonetics departments in Lund, Stockholm and UmeÃ¥. Method A selection of dialects was chosen in such a way as to enable phonetic and phonological analyses of a broad spectrum of segment inventories (vowels and consonants) and prosodic systems (intonation, word accent and quantity). Regionally conditioned voice qualities (phonation types) were also considered. Speech samples were collected from two groups, young and elderly. From each dialect area 3 male and 3 female speakers in an age interval from 55 to 75 were documented. The younger group consists of male and female speakers in the age interval from 20 to 30 years. The elderly informants were recruited from a rural population rooted in a traditional dialect. The younger informants were preferred to be of a similar geographical and educational background. In general, however, the younger generation had a longer formal education than the elderly generation. The contact was made via organizations which study local geography, history and folklore. The recordings took place in the informantsâ�� homes. The recordings contained both spontaneously produced and elicited speech materials. The spontaneous material consisted of interviews with one informant at a time. The elicited material consisted of words, phrases and sentences created with the purpose of documenting dialectal variation in segmental and prosodic features.
|The 1-2 minute excerpt transcribed here is taken from a longer stretch of 20-30 minutes of predominantly monologic spontaneous speech. The consultant is interviewed by the collector. The explicit aim of the interview, however, is to elicit as long stretches of unrestricted, monologic speech from the consultant's side as possible, the collector interfering only with discrete, mostly non-verbal feedback. There are no restrictions whatsoever on topics. A third person was usually present and managing the recording equipment, but without interfering in any other way. The recordings were made in the consultant's home environment.
