Linguistic Atlas of Dolomitic Ladinian and neighbouring Dialects, 1st part (Speaking Linguistic Atlas)

Data acquisition

The samples were collected by ALD-I-explorator Helga Böhmer in the Ladin Dolomites between 1992 and 1994, using excellent technical equipment (directional microphone, digital audio tape). Such brilliance of quality was necessary because basic interference, inevitable in analogue recording, is highly irritating for the human ear when listening for contrasts in isolated words.
