Project description

In the last few decades of the 20th century Flanders has witnessed the emergence of an intermediate language between the local dialects and the standard language. In order to understand current developments in this new variety (tussentaal), we have to do research on the perceptions and attitudes of the younger generations in Flanders, the speech-making generations, on this variety.
