Standard-dialect variation and its functionalization
This paper deals with the use of standard-dialect variation in the Upper Saxon dialect region. After the d-value for three recording situations was quantified, a variable analysis was conducted to investigate the frequencies of regional variants in the different settings. An in-depth analysis of one speaker finally showed interesting standard-dialect variation within one recording setting. The results indicate that a base dialect is extinct. Nevertheless, all speakers did use regional variants but rarely and inconsistently. The in-depth analysis, however, pointed out that dialect is used rather as a stylistic marker than as a marker of regional belonging.
