Slovenian Linguistic Atlas
The project Slovenian Linguistic Atlas to chart and compile all the dialects has taken over 70 years, with four generations of linguists compiling a list of words in over 400 local dialects and the corresponding maps. In 2012 the first book Human (body, illness, family) was published.
The Fran Ramovš Institute of the Slovenian Language ZRC SAZU has been involved in several international projects, including the General Slavonic Linguistic Atlas (OLA), the European Linguistic Atlas (ALE), Trans-European Language Resources Infrastructure (TELRI II), the International Federation of Terminological Centres and Banks (IFTB), and the Encyclopaedia of Slovene Onomastics - EOS.
The institute publishes the Slovenski jezik / Slovene Linguistic Studies Journal together with the Joyce and Elizabeth Hall Center for the Humanities at the University of Kansas, Lawrence, USA.
