Research interests

Tjaša Jakop (1975) is a researcher at the Dialectology Section. Her research focusses on Slovene dialects (i.e. collecting and analysing dialect material), focusing especially on the Styrian and Pannonian dialect groups. Her main research focus is dialectal morphology, particularly the category of the dual (she has published two monographs on this topic: one in Slovene and one in English: The Dual in Slovene Dialects, 2008) and gender. Her research focuses on the preparation of the Slovenian Linguistic Atlas which includes: recording and phonological and morphological descriptions of different dialects (also abroad: in Italy, Austria and Croatia) and geolinguistic presentation of dialectal lexica and morphological features (she has published over 70 morphological and lexical maps with comments). Part of her research focusses also on dialect analysis of Slovene folk songs. She participated in extensive corpus Slovenian Folk Songs (from the fifth volume forward, 2007–) and has written several papers encompassing this research area (2005–).
