Lecture on linguistic cartography by George Moroz
On December 19 George Moroz, one of the laboratory's participants, gave a lecture on "Lingytypology: an R package for linguistic cartography", as part of a series of lectures called "City data", which is organized by the projects Soft Kultura and Infokultura.
George Moroz talked about language as a means of studying dialectology and the history of local communities with the help of his R package Lingtypology. The lecture was dedicated to cartography and how it transformed from an elitist art form to a routine task.
