03_Dialect_Survey_Book_CoverThis volume is the polished version of the set of lexical field questionnaires developed and used in a multi-year project investigating the boundary between Wu and Jiang-Hwai Mandarin dialects supported by the Luce Foundation. It contains three questionnaires in the form of word lists: a long list of over 1900 lexical items, a medium list of 440 critical dialect vocabulary, and a short list of 60 for quick broad surveys. Also included is a short guide for the use of the handbook in the field, as well as sample completed questionnaires.
