Abstract

This paper introduces the ASinEs1, an atlas-based application devoted to the study of the syntactic variation of Spanish geolects. This project is groundbreaking, as there is no other atlas exclusively devoted to study the geolectal variation of geolectal variants of Spanish. Although ASinEs was originally conceived to explore the current geolects of Spanish, its flexibility allows it to study both the geolects of previous stages and the geolects of other close-by languages. This provides us with a po-werful tool to study variation of both Romance and non-Romance languages (Basque, English, Amerindi-an languages, etc.). This project is being developed in collaboration with the Centre de Linguística Teòrica (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona), the IKER Center at Bayonne (France), and the Real Academia Española.
