Query:   Dear linguists,

I intend to use Jakobson's phonological model (as exposed for example in
JAKOBSON Roman, WAUGH Linda, The Sound Shape of Language, 1979) to build
the perceptive diasystem of a dialectal area, and describe perception
and comprehension of various patois within this area. Does anyone know
of such an approach? More generally, is this model still in use or was
it completely replaced in recent works by generative phonology and/or
acoustical phonetics?

Thank you in advance!
