E. diversity and geographic fragmentation, instead of combining them in a single measure. In the second place, we may extend the study beyond its present limits by taking into account other regions: if we take similar data from the dictionaries of the Brabantish dialects and the Flemish dialects (which are compiled in parallel to the dictionary of the Limburgish dialects), can we confirm our findings? And even more appropriately, given our interest in semantics, we may envisage an extension towards other lexical fields, as represented by other installments of the dictionary: do the various factors that we have identified for the lexical field of human body play the same role in other fields, and what is the role of the field itself?

Uniformity calculations U and U’ were used to answer question (1) and (2). Convergence and divergence (question 1) are expressed through the increase and decrease of U/U’ values, respectively. The convergent or divergent evolution of one of the varieties towards the other (question 2) is expressed by greater changes of U/U’ values from a time period to another and by higher or lower values of U/U’ in different time periods rather than in a particular time period. Internal uniformity calculations I and I’ were used to answer question (3): the increase of I/I’ is indicative of growing internal homogeneity.

Fourth, we find 3 outliers and 19 influential observations in the data set. 7173, and the standard error for residuals decreases slightly. However, Heterodox concept features and onomasiological heterogeneity 35 because these differences are not fundamental, neither from a technical or an interpretative point of view, we again concentrate on the original model that includes the 23 observations. Now, what can we conclude from the results as presented in the table? In the first place, with more than 61% of explained variation (see the figure indicated by Adjusted R squared), the model may be considered a good one.
