Reductieverschijnselen in het Standaardnederlands in Vlaanderen en Nederland

Project information

The aim of this project is the study of reduction phenomena in spontaneous (= non-read) Standard Dutch. We use speech from the Spoken Dutch Corpus (Corpus Gesproken Nederlands) and speech collected for the VNC-project Variation in the pronunciation of Standard Dutch. A more specific aim is to compare the pronunciation of highly educated speakers without linguistic training with the pronunciation of teachers of Dutch, who are often considered to be prototypical speakers of Standard Dutch. This project links up with the renewed interest in standard language, where variation patterns in Standard Dutch in Flanders and the Netherlands are studied from a perspective of convergence and divergence.
