Re: Careers after studying linguistics?

I have an MA in Linguistics and Literature, specifically Germanic Languages. My dissertation was in phonology and sociolinguistics. After graduating, I worked in a bookstore for a year and then started my current job as a multilingual researcher (nothing too exciting, just corporate research). I'm a...

Re: Spreek Nederlands en Praat Afrikaans (Dutch & Afrikaans)

Dit is de perfecte gelegenheid om je Nederlands te oefenen, ZVLT :) Ik denk dat ik in het Engels droom over mensen met wie ik Engels praat, en in het Nederlands over mensen met wie ik Nederlands praat, of die ik in mijn hoofd in de categorie "België" heb gestopt. Klinkt eigenlijk logisch a...

Re: Sociolinguistics books

I recommend these ones: Labov - Sociolinguistic Patterns : a classic and a good place to start, contains some famous case studies, e.g. The Social Stratification of [r] in New York City Department Stores Trudgill - On Dialect: Social and Geographical Perspectives : Trudgill is one of my favourite li...

Re: Spreek Nederlands en Praat Afrikaans (Dutch & Afrikaans)

Hallo iedereen, ik geef binnenkort Nederlandse les aan Nieuw Zeelandse studenten en vroeg me af of iemand me in de richting kan wijzen van goede Nederlandse bronnen online (dialoogjes, oefeningen, etc)? In verband met het het tweetalig zijn, heb ik zelf ook een interessante evolutie meegemaakt. Mijn...

Re: Spreek Nederlands en Praat Afrikaans (Dutch & Afrikaans)

Ok, I've notied you also have regional languages, so I'm a bit confused. When you say "Dialect" do you mean the particular way in which standard Dutch is spoken in a region, or that regional language. Limburgs is certainly not Dutch, so I assume the people in Limburgs can speak standard D...

Re: Spreek Nederlands en Praat Afrikaans (Dutch & Afrikaans)

mmm sounds right I think I heard a s/z sound in there. Weird, but cool. Is there much vocabulary difference? Checked wiki, It's called Russian Dolls here, and SBS was advertising it a while ago so it may well be that, btu back then they were mainly speaking Russian so I didn't make the connection I...

Re: Spreek Nederlands en Praat Afrikaans (Dutch & Afrikaans)

I think I know what you're talking about, a series called Matroesjka's. I've never seen it but heard good things about it. You may have heard "zen/zin" instead of 'ben', that's a characteristic of Antwerps, they may say "Ik zin ok" for I'm fine". It comes from "zijn&quo...

Re: Spreek Nederlands en Praat Afrikaans (Dutch & Afrikaans)

Which movie is it? Pronouncing Vlaams as Vloams (or Flooms as you say) sounds like either Oostvlaams or Antwerps to me.

Re: Fun words to misspronounce.

During a visit to the zoo last year, I had to be told that you don't pronounce giraffe as gir-af-ee, and now I still do it. Giraffes deserve the extra eeee.

I also always say "coin toss" as "toin coss" for some reason.

certainly :) Here is the kind of Flemish you would hear on the news: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lJXY1mxruNE&feature=related Below are the main varieties of Flemish, but bear in mind that there are many varieties within these, so it may very well be that Afrikaans sounds like a dialect of Fle...

Re: Spreek Nederlands en Praat Afrikaans (Dutch & Afrikaans)

Ik denk dat de uitspraak van Vlaams en Afrikaans iets dichter bij elkaar liggen, maar wanneer ik iemand die als moedertaal Afrikaans heeft Engels hoor spreken, denk ik bijna altijd dat zij Nederlands zijn.

Re: Spreek Nederlands en Praat Afrikaans (Dutch & Afrikaans)

Ooo Nederlands! Ik kom uit België en woon in Nieuw Zeeland. Ik heb Germaanse Talen: Engels en Zweeds gestudeerd en ben enorm geinteresseerd in taalkunde, vooral fonologie en sociolinguïstiek. Heel interessant om Afrikaans te lezen!

Hopelijk beschouwen jullie Vlaams niet als een streektaal :D
