Basdisyn currently participates in two European research networks, namely, the broad Edisynresearch network and the smaller Wedisyn.
Edisyn is a European network of (dialect) syntacticians that use similar standards with respect to methodology of data collection, data storage and annotation, data retrieval and cartography. A second goal is to use this network to compile an extensive list of so-called doubling phenomena from European languages/dialects and to study them as a coherent object.
The Edisyn network went on in 2005 and it is led and coordinated by the Meertens Instituut at Amsterdam...
» Dialect Syntax in Westmost Europe (Wedisyn)
This is a smaller reseach network that brings researchers working on languages spoken in Westmost (continental) Europe together. The network took off in 2009 under Basdisyn coordination and nowadays it involves researchers from seven institutions outside Basdisyn (see list below); their research covers eight majority and minority languages altogether: asturian, basque, breton, catalan, galician, occitan, portuguese and spanish.
This networks' main goal is to share knowledge and expertise in the collection and analysis of syntactic dialect variation, particularly in aspects touching on variation in case and agreement.
The participants in this network are the following (sorted by language):
Universidad de Oviedo
Linguistique Formelle UMR 7110 (CNRS, U. Paris 7
María Pilar Perea
