In this episode, I had the honor to talk with yet another amazing professor, this time - from my own university. Prof. Newerkla & I chatted about contact between Czech & Slovak, but also what traces did they leave on Austrian German, as well as the language policy in Habsburg monarchy & much more!You can find prof. Newerkla’s work here.
I am very honored that I got the chance to talk to prof. Greenberg from the University of Kansas about various topics - his recent publications, features of Prekmurje dialect, language contact, language privilege and so much more! I enjoyed every moment of this interview, and I hope you will, too!Because prof. Greenberg is not only a linguist, but also a musician, this episode ends with a recommendation I got from him - ´´Dark eyes´´ by Oleg Timofeyev.To learn more about prof. Greenberg´s work, click here.
In this episode, I explored a minority language that kept one very interesting feature to this very day - Sorbian.P.S. Since Sorbian (both Upper and Lower) are small languages and the pronunciation was hard to find, it may be that /w/ is pronounced different, and I apologize for that. The transcript & a map can be found here.References:1. Gvozdanović, Jadranka. "Number in Sorbian with special reference to the dual." STUF-Language Typology and Universals 65.3 (2012): 280-295.2.

Although the quality of the sound in this episode is a bit lower than what you’re used to, I couldn’t miss the chance of  talking to these two amazing girls - Nina Tunteva & Viktorija Blazheska, founders of Jazicharnica, a blog about linguistics in Macedonian. I had a blast chatting  with them about their blog, Macedonian dialects, how my (Torlakian) dialect is close to Macedonian and many other things!
