Regionalsprache.de (REDE) is a long-term research project at Marburg's Forschungszentrum Deutscher Sprachatlas that aims to investigate the modern regional languages ​​of German. It is funded by the Akademie der Wissenschaften und der Literatur (Mainz).

There are various step-by-step instructions and helpful texts available for using the REDE SprachGIS. If you have any questions, please contact hilfe@regionalsprache.de.

All applications are continually being enhanced, optimized, and maintained by the project's workgroups, so you will always find new opportunities for your own regional-language research.

The REDE SprachGIS could only be realized because colleagues generously provided us with their research results free of charge. We are most indebted to them!

In order to continue to develop and improve the REDE SprachGIS, we kindly ask all users to point out any possible errors (kontakt@regionalsprache.de).
