Texas German Dialect Project
The Texas German Dialect Project (TGDP) is an umbrella organization for carrying out research in representative Texas German speech communities in central Texas. One of the primary goals of the TGDP is to preserve the Texas German dialect as it reflects the rich cultural and linguistic traditions of its residents.
To this end, members of the TGDP conduct interviews with residents of representative Texas German speech communities. Portions of these interviews are digitized and subsequently stored for preservation in the Texas German Dialect Archive (TGDA).
