Embleton Department of Languages, Literatures and Linguistics, York University n Dorin Uritescu co-editor of source atlas: Noul Atlas lingvistic român. Crisana.

Romanian Online Dialect Atlas© 2003 Embleton, Uritescu, Wheeler3 Romanian Online Dialect Atlas Supported ( ) by a grant from: Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (Canada)
Romanian Online Dialect Atlas© 2003 Embleton, Uritescu, Wheeler4 Agenda n The problem of high-volume, complex data in social sciences and humanities. n Predecessor projects: English, Finnish dialect data n Use of Multidimensional Scaling (MDS) to consolidate data n Interactive, media-rich presentation
Romanian Online Dialect Atlas© 2003 Embleton, Uritescu, Wheeler5 Problem In social sciences/humanities, data is often characterized by: n high volume n multiple variables or dimensions n no a priori model Dialectology provides a good exemplar
Romanian Online Dialect Atlas© 2003 Embleton, Uritescu, Wheeler6 Dialectology n Explain the variations in linguistic usage across geography n Simple example: church vs. kirk (< OE cirice) n More realistic problem: 169 features in 313 locations (SED) 213 features in 400+ locations (Finnish)
Romanian Online Dialect Atlas© 2003 Embleton, Uritescu, Wheeler7 Dialect atlases n Record the details in maps n Many maps needed to make an atlas n Recovery of individual facts is possible but... n Global understanding of the situation is lost in the volume of details
Romanian Online Dialect Atlas© 2003 Embleton, Uritescu, Wheeler8 English n Survey of English Dialects (SED) u 169 features at 313 locations n Computer Developed Linguistic Atlas of English n Applied MDS to already computerized data
Romanian Online Dialect Atlas© 2003 Embleton, Uritescu, Wheeler9 English: results n 2-D map of dialect locations n No geographic information used n Close correspondence to geography (as expected) n Highlighted further problems of handling and understanding high- volumes of data
Romanian Online Dialect Atlas© 2003 Embleton, Uritescu, Wheeler10 English Dialect Map n Northern counties at top n Mid and southern counties below n Somerset, Devon (South-west) is out of place (in East) n Star-bursts, colours, dotted lines all help interpret map data
Romanian Online Dialect Atlas© 2003 Embleton, Uritescu, Wheeler11 Finnish
Romanian Online Dialect Atlas© 2003 Embleton, Uritescu, Wheeler12 Kettunen (1940) The Dialect Atlas of Finland n 213 maps x 530 locations n Up to 16 features per map n Typically 1-3 features per location n ~120,000 data items Project: data computerization (largely done) Stage II: application of MDS (not yet done)
Romanian Online Dialect Atlas© 2003 Embleton, Uritescu, Wheeler13 Map 1 (parts)
Romanian Online Dialect Atlas© 2003 Embleton, Uritescu, Wheeler14 Special software to facilitate accurate data entry
Romanian Online Dialect Atlas© 2003 Embleton, Uritescu, Wheeler15 Ambiguity ?
Romanian Online Dialect Atlas© 2003 Embleton, Uritescu, Wheeler16 Resolution n Make Editorial decision: X, not Y n Mark as AMBIGUOUS X or Y n Get more input X (says expert)
Romanian Online Dialect Atlas© 2003 Embleton, Uritescu, Wheeler17 Lesson In transforming data from one medium to another, even well-structured data will have unexpected pitfalls: n Design data-transformation carefully n Prototype your system; Find the problems early n Plan to work iteratively
Romanian Online Dialect Atlas© 2003 Embleton, Uritescu, Wheeler18 Romanian Online Dialect Atlas: Crisana n Apply innovative contemporary methods in dialect geography to an online set of Romanian dialect data.
Romanian Online Dialect Atlas© 2003 Embleton, Uritescu, Wheeler19 Romanian language n Key to understanding the evolution of all Romance languages u Early branch, distinct from French- Spanish-Italian line n Exemplar of non-hierarchical, dialect variation, and linguistic continua u Transition areas contain mixtures of dialect features and specific features
Romanian Online Dialect Atlas© 2003 Embleton, Uritescu, Wheeler20 RODA: Part 1 Create online version of The New Romanian Linguistic Atlas. Crisana (Stan & Uritescu. 1996) n Available on internet and CD n Default interpretations n Interactive interface to data u custom select data for a map n Add audio clips to illustrate data
Romanian Online Dialect Atlas© 2003 Embleton, Uritescu, Wheeler21 RODA Prototype 1
Romanian Online Dialect Atlas© 2003 Embleton, Uritescu, Wheeler22 RODA: Part 2 Allow plug-in applications and other analyses of data, e.g. Apply Multidimensional Scaling to dialect data n Statistical technique n Consolidate large amounts of data n Complement to traditional analyses of small amounts of data
Romanian Online Dialect Atlas© 2003 Embleton, Uritescu, Wheeler23 Multidimensional Scaling
Romanian Online Dialect Atlas© 2003 Embleton, Uritescu, Wheeler24 Multidimensional Scaling n Statistical technique (Torgerson 1952) n Used in sociology, psychology, marketing n Reveals the scales along which data varies; gives a data-space n Uses distances [(dis)similarities] among responses of subjects
Romanian Online Dialect Atlas© 2003 Embleton, Uritescu, Wheeler25 MDS Axioms of metric n d(X,X) = 0 n d(X,Y) = d(Y,X) n d(X,Y) > 0 if X Y n d(X,Y) d(X,C) + d(C,Y) for all points C Matrix reflects these rules
Romanian Online Dialect Atlas© 2003 Embleton, Uritescu, Wheeler26 MDS n n+1 points generate an n- dimensional space n MDS can reduce that high- dimensional space to 2 (or 3) dimensions n Result: complex data can be viewed as a map
Romanian Online Dialect Atlas© 2003 Embleton, Uritescu, Wheeler27 MDS n Can use MDS to consolidate data u English 312 dimensions reduced to 2 u All 169 features included (and taken in relevant subsets) u Finnish, Romanian provide large data sets that can do the same
Romanian Online Dialect Atlas© 2003 Embleton, Uritescu, Wheeler28 Interactive, media-rich presentation Objectives n Make data accessible, useful to a wide research audience Methods n Interactive selection of data n Constructive presentation of data n Addition of audio and other media Online is much more than a book!
Romanian Online Dialect Atlas© 2003 Embleton, Uritescu, Wheeler29 Framework and Appns n Online atlas provides a framework for accessing and presenting data n Other applications can work within the framework to transform or process the data, such as: F MDS data consolidation F Tools to analyze dialect variants of phonemes (proposed) F Others
Romanian Online Dialect Atlas© 2003 Embleton, Uritescu, Wheeler30 Summary n Humanities and Social Sciences deal with large, complex data sets n Explore methods to access, process, present this kind of data n Solutions include: u MDS type processing u Online, interactive, rich presentation n Example: Romanian Online Dialect Atlas
