Fw: Erzgebirgisch Classification Question

Dear all,

I don't have a problem with tagging Erzgebirgisch as dialect of sxu.
It is - as the evidence shows - possible to take it (linguistically)
as a dialect of sxu (although my own analysis leads to another result,
but as long as there is so little work done on this variety, nobody
can really say what is correct and what not). So I don't consider it
wrong to tag it as sxu dialect. I don't know if these tags can be
changed when more extensive work has been done on this (in some
decades...). As you know, (most) people prefer to do fieldworks in
more "exotic" languages than in boring German dialects. ;O)

Best regards,
