Example text

In the event that no new match can be found for any site within the 'three Jowest counts restriction', then the network is automatically terminated, and the program restarts with the next least differentiated pair of sites. The results of the procedure is the creation of a complex of networks, internally strongly interconnected, and dividing the dialect area into four, which can most conveniently be illustrated as two separate network complexes (Figures 3 and 4). The two larger complexes are in fact made up of a large number of localised networks; we discover these simply by removing all those instances where sites have selected into networks other than their own.

G. to develop some more direct elicitation techniques in such there they material. necessary cases, though the informant's judgement is not influenced by having his or her attention drawn to the point at issue, always a difficulty in the case of such shibboleth forms as these. 7. There is some evidence that present tense forms such as sana i extend as far as Ceinewydd on the Cardiganshire coast (Davies, 1934, p460), and to Hebron in Carmarthenshire (Thorne, 1977, p391-2). Detailed knowledge of the distribution of these negative forms in south-west Wales generally is, however, lacking.

The two larger complexes are in fact made up of a large number of localised networks; we discover these simply by removing all those instances where sites have selected into networks other than their own. Since a new network is started whenever a pivot site fails to find a match within the 'three lowest counts' restriction, the separated networks appear on removal of these external selections. The networks can be illustrated as skeletal structures, as in Figure 5. 6. Interpreting the MST The claims made for the MST centre on the relative intensity of selections made for different sites, and on the relative linguistic distance between them.
