Meeting Description:

Since the publication of the third volume of the Phonological Atlas of Dutch
Dialects (FAND) and the first volume of the Morphological and the Syntactic
Atlas of Dutch Dialects (MAND and SAND) in 2005, the Dutch language area may
very well be the best described area in the world with respect to dialect
variation. The present workshop aims at exploring the relevance of
system-internal factors for the patterns of diffusion that are described in
these atlases. To participate, send your one-page abstract (including
references) to gunther.devogelaerugent.be, to arrive no later than June, 30.
Talks are 20 min. (+ 10 min. discussion). We encourage abstracts in Dutch, but
non-native speakers of Dutch may submit English abstracts as well. Decisions on
the acceptance of the abstract can be expected before September, 1. A selection
of papers will appear as a theme issue of Taal & Tongval

The workshop 'Dutch dialect geography and internal factors' will take place on
Friday, November 23, 2007 in Ghent. It will be held at the Royal Academy for
Dutch Linguistics and Literature (Koninklijke Academie voor Nederlandse Taal- en
Letterkunde-KANTL), Koningstraat 18, 9000 Gent (Belgium).

Participation is free, but it is advised to register beforehand with Valérie
Bouckaert, via e-mail (valerie.bouckaertugent.be), phone (+32/9/264.40.75) or
fax (+32/9/264.41.70). As for lunch, there are plenty of bars and restaurants in
the immediate neighbourhood of the venue. Anyone who wants to participate in the
common lunch (cost +/- 10 €), has to contact Valérie Bouckaert before November, 10.
