The follow-up study of Finnish dialects was started in 1989. It is a sociolinguistic and dialectological longitudinal study which is carried out in cooperation with the universities. The goal of the project has been to study the development of regional dialects in real time in 10 rural municipalities at the interval of 10 years. The municipalities chosen represent the traditional main dialect groups of Finnish. In each town, altogether 15 speakers have been used as informants. The external variables used in the study include age and sex: in each town, speakers of three generations have been studied (O = old, M = middle-aged, Y = young), both men and women. The data have been collected by using the traditional dialect interview method, and the study has focused on phonological and morphological features. Reports of ten sub-studies and a final report of the first round have been completed.

The second round of the project was started in 1999 and completed in 2007. Eight of the sub-studies have been completed, one of them as a form of the dissertation (Kurki 2005). During the second round, other types of data collected in addition to interviews. The part of the sub-studies focus on other than traditional sociolinguistic variables.
