German Dialectology was: Re: Tsuhon: tentative phonology

A question I guess mainly directed to Henrik:

Is there anywhere where I can get a mapping of soundchanges
(? differences?) from Standard High German to Austrian? I would need this
for Dalmatian. As it is, I'm going by the way I say the words, but
sometimes my pronunciation is more Seggsisch than Eestraaksch, and it
would seem a bit odd to have a loanword in Dalmatian sounding like it came
from Sebnitz instead of Graz...

On a broader scale I think it would be interesting to look at a
comparative chart of the differences between the German dialects.

BTW I found a website about the writing system of Bayrisch a while a go (I
cant remember the url now...) and am curious as to whether any of the
dialects have besides Bayrisch has as standardised an orthography as
that; I've seen Saechsisch written dialectally too, but didn't look very any rate does anyone write in their dialect like they
did in Luxembourg before the introduction of the standardised
Letzebuergesch orthography?
