My work focuses on sociolinguistics, historical linguistics and language contact for Slavic languages, mostly Russian. Within my PhD project, I trace the dispersal and internal diversity of the Russian language using quantitative methods to provide a quantitative classification of Russian dialects. This consists in further interdisciplinary research on ecological and sociological factors that influence the dynamic of language diversification and the formation of dialects – including language and cultural contact (also to neighbouring countries such as Finland, Belarus or Ukraine), migration, standardisation measures as well as transport of knowledge and information.
Keywords: Sociolinguistics, historical linguistics, language contact, dialectology, dialectometry
