Meeting Description:

'A Germanic Sandwich 2013' will be held at the University of Leuven from 11-12 January 2013, as the fourth edition of a series of conferences in which Dutch is compared with its West Germanic neighbours, English and German. The first one took place in Berlin to commemorate the 1956 appearance of the seminal publication 'Nederlands tussen Duits en Engels' ('Dutch between German and English'), a study by the renowned Dutch linguist C.B. van Haeringen. Later editions of the conference were held at Sheffield (2008) and Oldenburg (2010). The conferences have spawned a number of special issues, either as a book volume (Hüning et al. 2006) or as special issues of journals (Vismans et al. 2010; Ruigendijk et al. in prep.). See also http://www.shef.ac.uk/dutch/pastevents#sandwich and Van der Wouden, forthc.).

Call for Papers:

Abstracts are invited for 30 minutes talks (20+10), in which Dutch is compared to German and/or English (other Germanic languages may of course be included as well).

Studies from a language acquisition or psycholinguistic perspective will find their place as well.
