Until four years ago there was no simple tool for linguists to mark a set of points on a map with different colors. A point corresponded to a language, and its color corresponded to a linguistic feature of the language. This inspired George Moroz, of HSE’s Linguistic Convergence Laboratory and School of Linguistics, to create a new software product that turned out to be very popular: lingtypology.
An article by members of the Linguistic Convergence Laboratory was published in the journal “Language variation and change”
From a northern village to an academic article, or How many linguists do you need to describe variation in Russian dialect?
