Example text

At the bottom of the tree are the leaves, and here we find a classification into the maximum number of groups, in our case 86, with each grouping containing a single variety. We thus have 85 levels, the first suggesting a division into two groups and the 85th suggesting a division into 86. For each level i (1 ( i ( 85), we computed the variance in the original distances, as explained by the cophenetic distances of the part of the tree that gives a division in i+1 groups. In a graph, the variances are plotted against the number of groups as distinguished by each of the levels.

For each pair of dialects we count the number of times that both dialects are found in the same natural group. The number will vary between 0 (never) and 1,000 (always). When two dialects belong to the same group in more than 950 of the cases (95 %), we mark them as being “connected”. In this way we will obtain networks. For example, when dialects A and B are connected, and dialects C and D are connected, but dialects A and B are not connected with dialects C and D, we obtain two separated networks, each of which consists of two dialects.
