Dialectology is an empirical discipline. It handles large amounts of data in diverse ways, and this fact makes it not only possible to use modern digital tools but also necessary. Digital methods provide immense opportunities in storing, visually
The aim of this paper is to bring into discussion some data concerning early Christian inscriptions from the Iberian Peninsula on the differentiation of Vulgar Latin, focusing on the several methods and procedures of collecting data (in corpora and databases), and the interpretation as regards Latin dialectology. The low number of specific dialectal traits in early Christian funerary epigraphy contrasts with specific local features that can be found when we put the epigraphic texts into their social and cultural context. We may conclude that Latin dialectal evidence in Late Antiquity should be evaluated according to its context. We can understand both common and specific traits of the written language from this perspective.

Prince Louis Lucien Bonaparte (1813--1891) was an important pioneer in the field of Basque, English, Italian and Sardinian dialectology, who deserves a much better treatment than what he has received in modern books of history of linguistics. The main aim of this research is to give more accurate information on this subject.

The author presents the New General Atlas of Hungarian Dialects which is in progress. We get a short review about the necessity of a new general dialect atlas in Hungary. The main reason is the radical decrease of dialect words which was effected by the end of the traditional agricultural way of life. The other reason is that the data of the first general Hungarian Dialect Atlas was collected between 1949 and 1964. The author presents the aspects of the research and the content of the questionnaires; the character und the number of the lexical, morphological, syntactical, and sociolinguistic questions; and the sociolinguistic aspects of the informant selection. The collection was started in 2007 and will be finished in 2011.
In the present period of the development of linguistic carpathology (a separate linguistic disciplin which studies reasons, development and result of Carpathian language contacts and interferences) the dialectological research and mainly the works of linguistic geography are considerably important. The most significant project of this sphere of research is the Carpathian Dialectological Atlas. During the preparation and realization of this macro-atlas the knowledge and experience acquired in the studies of Slovak dialectologists were involved in a considerable extent.
