[en] "The TriMCo project aims to uncover the multi-factorial mechanisms leading to the rise of linguistic areas. The novel idea of TriMCo rests in the integration of several approaches to profile typologically significant areal clines by employing tools and achievements of typology, areal and contact linguistics, historical-comparative linguistics, dialect geography and computational methods mainly on the basis of coherent oral discourse. This integration requiresa sufficiently fine-grained level of linguistic analysis and a small enough area with well-attested phenomena of convergence. For this purpose we have chosen the Baltic-Slavic Contact Zone (BSCZ) and will attempt to establish a virtually exhaustive picture of the mechanisms and triggers involved in the rise of 12 representative features belonging to different structural levels."
