The graphic realization of /l/-vocalization in Swiss German WhatsApp messages

  • 1. University of Zurich, Switzerland


/l/-vocalization is a feature normally found in a rather clear cut area in the western part of Switzerland. Its geographical boundaries are well documented as well as social influences on the realisation of the variants. This study, based on a corpus of authentic WhatsApp messages, takes another approach by documenting isolated forms of /l/-vocalization outside the area traditionally attributed to the feature.
