Language Variation in the Low Countries

Aims & Scope

Taal & Tongval: Language Variation in the Low Countries is a peer-reviewed, academic journal devoted to the scientific study of language variation in the Netherlands and Flanders, in neighbouring areas and in languages related to Dutch. All types of variation are covered, including but not restricted to geographical, social, ethnic, stylistic and diachronic variation. Articles may deal with all aspects of human language. The journal welcomes both empirical work as studies linking language variation to developments in theoretical linguistics. Articles are subjected to a double blind peer review process.

Taal & Tongval welcomes contributions in Dutch, English, and German. In certain cases we also consider articles in other languages, including Frisian, Afrikaans, and French.

The journal was first published in 1949 and is published in open access since 2011.
