Analyse dialectométrique des parlers berbères de Kabylie

Abstract : This study is a dialectometric analysis of Berber dialects of Kabylia. This work includes a sample of 168 Kabyle dialects spread across the Kabyle territory. The analyzed corpus includes 130 entries (lexemes and phrases) collected in each of the varieties considered. We opted for the Levenshtein method to calculate the distance between the variants. We chose the algorithm of Ward's Method for grouping varieties. We tested three methods to calculate the distance between the sounds: the binary method, the Euclidean distance and the Manhattan distance. The analysis of the results allowed us to show the dialect continuum in Kabylia and classify Kabyle dialects into five mains areas.
