    This paper introduces an industry-standard knowledge discovery process into the realm of language variation research. The Linguistic Knowledge Discovery (LINKDIS) approach advocated here integrates exploratory data mining tech-niques and related statistical procedures in a manner which inherently emphasises the importance of linguistic interpretability of uncovered results. In addition the proposal raises four interrelated research questions to complement and improve current research strategies with respect to syntactic and morphological variation and the relation between language variation and geography.
