This article reports first results of a quantity typology study of Swedish dialects, conducted within the Swedia2000 project (see also www.swedia.nu). The examination of recordings from 20 different areas suggests three preliminary types of quantity distinctions: one type shows the usual Swedish complementary quantity distinction, one type uses an additional quantity pattern and one type shows remarkable amounts of pre-aspiration.
