The Tsugaru Dialect


This website is dedicated to the Tsugaru dialect (Tsugaru-ben). My goal is to make this site into a detailed for the dialect. For now, check out what I have here:

Dialect Overview - This contains general information and features about the dialect
Dictionary - This will be a more formal list of Tsugaru-ben words and inflectional rules

Click here to visit the Matsunoki corpus of the Tsugaru dialect, which consists of trees that include syntactic and morphological analysis, based on folktales narrated by native speakers of the dialect.
