Despite the restrictions imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic, the project on Grammatical Areality in the Nordic Countries and Northern Germany (GrammArNord) was launched at the beginning of March. The project investigates grammatical similarities between Nordic and Northern German varieties from the perspective of areal and contact linguistics. Particular focus is placed on morphological and syntactic features in non-standard varieties such as dialects. The aim is to record, describe and map such areal features in a small cross-linguistic digital language atlas.
Sabrina Goll and Nina Sternitzke are part of the team as scientific assistants. Sarah Paetzke is involved as a student assistant.
The project is funded by the German Research Foundation until February 2023. Among the cooperation partners is the Specialist Information Service for Northern Europe at Kiel University Library.
