Testing models of diffusion of morphosyntactic innovations in Twitter data

Abstract:

Established models of the spatial diffusion of linguistic innovations vary in their relationship to population density. Differences in prediction between the gravity models (Trudgill 1974), in which probability of diffusion is sensitive to settlement size, and the traditional wave models can be challenging to test due to the difficulty of large-scale and finely-grained geographical sampling. This paper tests the suitability of data derived from Twitter in establishing diffusion patterns. Usin...
