Computational analysis of Gondi dialects

Taraka Rama, Çağrı Çöltekin, Pavel Sofroniev


Abstract
This paper presents a computational analysis of Gondi dialects spoken in central India. We present a digitized data set of the dialect area, and analyze the data using different techniques from dialectometry, deep learning, and computational biology. We show that the methods largely agree with each other and with the earlier non-computational analyses of the language group.
