Language variation in Slovene
A case study of two geographically mobile speakers
The article presents the results of a pilot study that aims to test the methodological approaches of variationist sociolinguistics on Slovene language material in order to define the typology of linguistic strategies in dialect contacts in the Slovene capital. The research investigates the real language use of mobile speakers from the Idrija region, who commute for work or school to Ljubljana. The research corpus is based on text selection from informants’ full-day self audio recordings, according to time, place, interlocutors, topic of the conversation and formality of the situation. Methodologically, the analysis of five phonological variables is combined with qualitative data from interviews about the speakers’ experiences with language use, language attitudes and the perception of their own language behaviour.
Keywords: dialect contact, identity, language attitudes, mobile speakers, phonology, self audio recording, Slovene language
