Meeting Description:

A Germanic Sandwich 2010: Dutch between English and German
A comparative linguistic conference

Where? University of Oldenburg (Germany)
When? 17-18 September 2010

A Germanic Sandwich 2010 will be the third in a series of conferences in which
Dutch is compared with its closest Germanic neighbours, English and German. Four
years ago the first one took place in Berlin to commemorate the appearance of
Nederlands tussen Duits en Engels ('Dutch between German and English)', a study
by the renowned Dutch linguist C.B. van Haeringen. In 2006 (the 50th anniversary
of Van Haeringen's book) the conference papers were published under the same
title. In 2008 the conference took place in Sheffield. A report on that meeting
as well as presentations that were given there can be found here:


This third two-day conference will be hosted by the Department of Dutch, and the
faculty of arts of the Carl von Ossietzky university in Oldenburg. The
conference organising committee consists of Esther Ruigendijk (Oldenburg), Roel
Vismans (Sheffield) and Freek van de Velde (Leuven). The conference languages
will be Dutch, English and German.
