Research: participation in the preparation of the Slovene Linguistic Atlas (external associate)

Research interests

As a lecturer of Slovene in foreign universities, Assistant Prof. Vladimir Nartnik has incorporated into his research those levels of Slovene which served as foundations for his research publications on typology. On his return to Slovenia, he has focused his research (as a dialectologist) on the problems of accentuation, and later on, directed his work to the geolinguistic field. He has participated in the preparation of the Slovene Linguistic Atlas. Since 1998 he has been a member of the Editorial Board of the international journal Studia Slavica Mithologica.
