International Lingustic Atlases

The Center successfully participates in several international projects among which the most significant are the International Linguistic Atlases. The leaders of this project in MANU have been Professor Božidar Vidoeski and Professor Zuzanna Topolińska. The projects comprise the Slavic Linguistic Atlas, one of the projects of the International Committee of Slavists, and the Atlas Linguarum Europae (ALE). Both atlases are international and multilateral in scope. Within the framework of these projects, field work as well as historical and typological analyses of Macedonian dialect data are being carried out.  The projects also include the qualitative analysis and computer generated linguistic maps. ICAL is one of the referential Centers for this activity. Macedonian representative in the International boards of both Atlases is Professor Marjan Markoviќ.
