Abstract [en]

The proceedings of the Sixth Nordic Dialectology Conference, held in Karjaa (Karis), Finland, on 12–16 August 1998, contain 28 of the 32 papers presented at the conference. The contributions span a wide geographical area, including discussions about Scandinavian dialects within the territories of Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland. In two of them, Finnish dialects are also examined.

The three plenary lectures were given by the Dane Inge Lise Pedersen, the Norwegian Helge Sandøy and the Swede Gösta Bruce. They raised important questions of theory and method, arising to a signicifant extent from the speakers' involvement in dialect projects currently under way in the different Nordic countries. Themes addressed in other contributions included dialect in a perspective of change dialect and identity, and dialect and written language.

Between them, the papers in this volume testify to a scholarly breadth, in terms of both the data studied and the theories and methods applied, a breadth which often confronts dialectologists with new issues and draws them into new partnerships.
