This panel aims to showcase research in the field of lectometry. In this field, quantitative measures are employed to aggregate over linguistic variables in order to establish the relative similarity (or distance) between different lects. These lects are collections of linguistic features that can vary along any extra-linguistic contextual dimension in the broadest sense possible (Geeraerts, Grondelaers & Bakema 1994: 4). Given the definition above, several fields of linguistic research fall within the scope of lectometry. Specifically, in dialectometry, stylometry, sociolectometry and language perception research, distances between lects are studied along the geographical, discursive, social and subjective axis respectively. In this panel, we aim to highlight the range of research questions that can be addressed against the background of lectometry.

The panel’s keynote speaker will be Martijn Wieling (Winner of the 2016 European Young Research Award (EYRA)), who will talk about “New approaches for investigating and analyzing dialectal linguistic variation”.

The panel on lectometry is organised by: Jocelyne Daems, Karlien Franco, Laura Rosseel* & Melanie Röthlisberger from the Quantitative Lexicology and Variational Linguistics (QLVL) research group at University of Leuven, Belgium and *the Research Foundation Flanders (FWO).
