Svensk talspråkshistoria: tempo och riktning

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceeding

Abstract

The article discusses the process of the divergence of Swedish dialects in the Middle Ages and early modern time. Contrary to what is generally believed it is argued that the development is rather slow in the Middle Ages and more rapid afterwards until approximately 1800. Various demographic and other socio-historical factors are proposed as explanations.
