The impact of dialect loss on the acceptance of tussentaal: the special case of West-Flanders in Belgium

Author

Abstract
This chapter represents one of the first in-depth attitudinal investigations into Tussentaal. Building on a speaker evaluation experiment in which older and younger West-Flemish listener-judges rate Belgian Standard Dutch, Brabantic-flavoured Tussentaal and West-Flemish-flavoured Tussentaal, two hypotheses are explored. First of all, we investigate whether the strong position of the dialects in West-Flanders, and the alleged concomitant weak position of Tussentaal, translate in negative attitudes towards West-Flemish Tussentaal. Secondly, it is investigated to what extent times are “a-changing”: is Tussentaal more easily tolerated in the private conceptualisations of adolescent West-Flemings?
