This volume summarizes the results of a joint North American - Bulgarian research project in dialectology, which culminated in a joint field expedition in the summer of 1996. The project was co-directed by Professor Ronelle Alexander of the University of California, Berkeley, Professor Todor Bojadzhiev, and then Assistant Professor Vladimir Zhobov, both of Sofia University. The expedition and the research resulting from it was supported in part by a grant from the International Research and Exchanges Board (IREX) with funds provided by the United States Department of State through the Title VIII program. None of these organizations is responsible for the views expressed. Links to two maps of Bulgaria can be found on the UCIAS website for the volume: One shows the sites visited by the 1996 expedition, and the other summarizes fieldwork by the expedition leaders, which was carried out between 1990 and 1993 and which lay the groundwork for the 1996 expedition. Except in the volume's title page and table of contents, the transliteration of Bulgarian Cyrillic follows the normal “academic” system, with the addition that it renders the Bulgarian vowel “er goljam” by the Bulgarian Cyrillic character.
