This will allow for a more thorough study of the regional changes and differentiation of the Latin language of the Imperial Age in a wider sense and for a multilayer visualization of the discovered structures concerning linguistic geography. The project is going to be realized with the collaboration of the Latin Department of the Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest and the Lendület ('Momentum') Research Group for Computational Latin Dialectology of the Research Institute for Linguistics of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, supported by the Hungarian Scientific Research Fund (= OTKA, no.
