Project description

The project can be situated within the framework of a more global project on Flemish lexicography, the series known as ‘Woordenboek van de Vlaamse Dialecten’ (‘Flemish Dialect Dictionary), which focuses on the vocabulary of the dialects spoken in French Flanders (Département du Nord, France), the Belgian provinces of West- and East-Flanders and Zealand Flanders (the Netherlands). Its aim is to create an alectronic database of dialect vocabulary and to subsequently convert the latter into dictionary volumes.
