Research interests

Dr. Peter Weiss’ theoretical research and its practical applications focus on the Slovene (dialect) lexicography, especially on the speech of the lower Zadrečka and upper Savinja valleys. He also investigates orthographical and historical aspects of Slovene literary language. In the Dialectological Section, he is responsible for the digitisation of the Institute's own dialect materials. He participates in the preparation of the Slovene Linguistic Atlas (SLA) and the Slavic Linguistic Atlas (OLA / ОЛА). He designed the ZRCola input system.

In the Institute of Lexicography of Austrian Dialects and Names, Austrian Academy of Sciences (DINAMLEX) in Vienna, he has been participating in the establishment of an electronic database of Bavarian dialects in Austria (dbo @ ema).

Since 2009 he has been editing Jezikoslovni zapiski journal.
