Differences between Swiss High German and German High German via data-driven methods


Schneider, Gerold (2018). Differences between Swiss High German and German High German via data-driven methods. In: 3rd Swiss Text Analytics Conference (SwissText 2018), Winterthur, Switzerland, 12 June 2018 - 13 June 2018, 17-25.

Abstract

This study uses data-driven methods to detect and interpret differences between the High German used as standard language of written communication in Switzerland, and German High German. The comparison is based on a comparable web corpus of two million sentences, one million from Switzerland and one million from Germany. We describe differences at the levels of lexis, morphosyntax, and syntax, and compare to previously described differences. We show that data-driven methods manage to detect a wide range of differences.
