This article describes a novel approach to linguistic field research consisting in exploiting the self-regulation of a market for collecting data on language use. The market is conceived as an output-agreement game with a purpose called Borsa Parole. The agreement can be traded with by the players what makes it adjustable. Borsa Parole has been conceived and is deployed for a linguistic study on the divergence of Italian dialects and vernaculars.
