Publisher’ s description:
This handbook aims at a state-of-the-art overview of earlier and recent research into older, newer and emerging non-standard varieties of Dutch. The discussion concerns theoretical embedding, potential interdisciplinary connections and the methodology of the studies at issue. It presents general concepts and approaches in the relatively broad domain of Dutch variation linguistics and the main actual developments in different varieties of Dutch.
