Linguistics Club Talk: WoordWaark @ PFNAC 202

While Dutch is the standard language in the Netherlands, Low Saxon and Limburgish are recognized according to part II of the European Charter for Regional or Minority Languages, and Frisian is recognized according to part III. Recognition according to part II means that administrative divisions may not constitute an obstacle to the promotion of the the minority language. Part III requirements include those of Part II. In addition, a language with this status is a compulsory subject in primary schools, and it may be used in courtrooms, in contact with administrative, local and regional authorities and in public services. In this talk we focus on the Groningen regional language, a Low Saxon variety.
