Welcome to Bulgarian Dialectology as Living Tradition, a searchable and interactive database of oral speech representing a broad range of Bulgarian dialects. Data is presented in 181 texts excerpted from material recorded in 68 different Bulgarian villages.
Data entry has not yet been completed but is well underway. See Contents for more information about what is currently available.
Texts are composed of Lines, and are associated with various Locations. Lines are composed of individual Tokens. Tokens have associated tags for grammatical, lexical, and linguistic trait information.
Each text is viewable as Glossed View (tokens with grammatical information, English glosses, and Bulgarian lemmas), Line Display (text line and English translation only), and Cyrillic Line Display (Bulgarian lines in Cyrillic).
