Boring post 2: I find the aesthetics of the configuration described here overwhelming:
A special situation obtains in some areas, in that there are successions of different dialects lying next to one another so that each is mutually intelligible with its near neighbours but those at either end are mutually unintelligible (e.g., a succession ABCDEFGH, in which ABCD, DEFG, and FGH are sufficiently intercomprehensible to rank as dialects, but not A and F, B and H, etc.).
Stay tuned for a boring post each day for the next week.
