Dialectology has long been stereotyped as a limited scope of research since dialectologists long lived with the prejudice of being data collectors who amused their time to wander in rural meadows and converse with old peoples; and if there was any relationship between dialectology with other disciplines it was often viewed as intricate and sometimes controversial through many classificatory approaches.
