We present work in progress from a project on phonological dialect-standard variability in young children who acquire two varieties of German, a High Alemannic dialect and standard German. Drawing on a longitudinal audiovisual corpus of spontaneous family interaction involving three children regularly recorded within the age span of approx. 1;6 to 4;0, the project’s aim is to uncover the language-internal and language-external factors that constrain this variability and the way it develops over time.
