Abstract and Keywords

This chapter gives an outline of the corpus and work at the Danish National Research Foundation LANCHART Centre. The Centre has performed re-recordings of a number of informants from earlier studies of Danish speech thus making it possible to study variation and change in real time. The chapter provides a brief overview of the corpus design and focuses on the methods and results of selected sociophonetic corpus studies. Three exemplifications are offered: The geographical pattern of the () variable, the accommodation to a moving target (i.e. to the changing Copenhagen patterns) of the raising of (æ) to [ɛ], and finally the co-variation of three phonetic variables and one grammatical variable (the generic pronoun) in a single interview.

Keywords: Danish, phonetic variation and change, geographical patterns of change, sociophonetic corpus studies, corpus design
