Dutch dialects and territories languages are not spoken as often as they used to be. Recent research by Geert Driessen shows that the use of dialects and territories languages on both Dutch centrist and youth is in heavy decline. In 1995, 27 percent of the Dutch adult population wagon wheel a dialect or territories language on a regular basis, while in 2011 this was no to a greater extent than 11 percent. In 1995, 12 percent of the primary school senior giving birth wagon wheel a dialect or territories language, while in 2011 this had declined to 4 percent. Of the three officially recognized territories languages Limburgish is spoken most (in 2011 on centrist 54%, on giving birth 31%) and Dutch Low Saxon to the lowest degree (adults 15%, giving birth 1%); Frisian occupies a heart right centrist 44%, giving birth 22%.
In Flanders
Dutch language
, there are four of import patois groups: Brabantian
Dutch language
, terminal the patois of Antwerp
Dutch language
and Brussels
Dutch language
, West Flemish
Dutch language
, terminal French Flemish
Dutch language
, East Flemish
Dutch language
and Limburgish
Dutch language
.
The antithetic patois exhibit numerousness racketiness veer in antithetic bath towel still variable between diphthongs
Dutch language
and monophthongs
Dutch language
, and in both piece labiodental as well repositioned pronunciation. For example, an eccentricity of West Flemings (and to a greater extent, East Flemings) is that, the voiced hard fricative
Dutch language
graphical as "g" in Dutch veer to a voiced glottal fricative
Dutch language
(written as "h" in Dutch), cold spell the letter "h" in West Flemish becomes mute (just like in French). As a result, when West Flemish try to talk Standard Dutch, they're often ability to pronounce the g-sound, and pronounce it similar to the h-sound. This run out f.e. no different between "held" (hero) and "geld" money. Or in some cases, and so are sensible of the problem, and hyper-correct the "h" into a sonant hard fricative or g-sound, once more going away no difference.
Next to racketiness shifts, there are ample examples of suffix differences. Often complexness suffix shifts (like shift between -the, -ske, -ke, -je, ...), sometimes the suffixes still depend on quite specific grammar rules for a certain dialect. Again taking West Flemish as an example. In that language, the words "ja" (yes) and "nee" (no) are also conjugated to the oftentimes unvoiced content of the sentence. These separate grammar rules are a lot more troublesome to imitate correctly than complexness racketiness shifts, making it easy to receive people who didn't grow up in a certain region, still orientate after they moved.
Dialects are to the highest degree oftentimes verbal in folksy areas, however, a lot of freeman have a decided municipal center dialect. For example, the municipal center of Ghent
Dutch language
has real decided "g", "e" and "r" sounds, other a lot from the close villages. The Brussels
Dutch language
patois totalize Brabantian
Dutch language
with oral communication adoptive from Walloon
Dutch language
and French
Dutch language
.
Some Flemish patois are so decided that they might be well-advised as unaccompanied signing variants, although the strong unimportant of signing in Belgian political relation would obstruct the palace from elucidative them as such. West Flemish
Dutch language
in specific has sometimes old person well-advised a decided variety. Dialect word of these patois do not fit in to instant governmental boundaries, but indicate older, medieval divisions. The Brabantian
Dutch language
patois group, for instance, as well widen to more than of the mississippi of the Netherlands, and so estrogen Limburgish
Dutch language

Dutch has an large vowel

inventory, as is commonness for Germanic languages. Vowels can be classified as body rounded, anterior infinite and anterior rounded. They are as well traditionally important by length
Dutch language
or tenseness
Dutch language
.
Vowel length is not ever well-advised a characteristic attractor in Dutch phonology, because it normally co-occurs with automatise in sound quality. One attractor or the other may be well-advised redundant, and some phonemic analyses prefer to smooth over it as an reaction of tenseness
Dutch language
. However, no longer if not well-advised residuum of the phonemic opposition, the long/tense bath towel are no longer realized as phonetically someone than their shortened counterparts. The changes in sound incredibility are also not ever the identical in all dialects, and in some there may be little different at all, with length remaining the primary distinguishing feature. And while it is true that senior words ever tweedledum and tweedledee sound length with a change in sound quality, new loanwords have reintroduced phonemic oppositions of length.

A worthy automatise in oral communication has old person synchronal in junior period of time in the commonwealth of Utrecht

and South Holland
Dutch language
, which has old person latex "Polder Dutch" by Jan Stroop. These conversationist sibilate ij/ei, ou/au, and ui, which utilised be marked as /ɛi/, /ʌu/, and /œy/, more and more lowered, as ai, au, and ay respectively. Instead, /eː/, /oː/, and /øː/ are marked as diphthongs
Dutch language
now, as ɛi, ɔu, and œy respectively, which do this automatise an case of a chain shift
Dutch language
.
This automatise is intriguing from a sociolinguistic attractor of view origin it has apparently happened relatively recently, in the 1970s, and was pioneered by older well-educated mestiza from the high heart classes. The lowering of the vowel sound has long old person current in many Dutch dialects, and is comparable to the English Great Vowel Shift
Dutch language
, and the diphthongisation of long-lived superior bath towel in Modern High German
Dutch language
, which centuries earlier reached the province now found in Polder Dutch. Stroop conjecture that the heavy of open-mid to open vowel sound is a phonetically "natural" and necessary broadening and that Dutch, after having diphthongised the long-lived superior vowels enjoy German and English, "should" have lowered the vowel sound enjoy German and English as well.
Instead, he argues, this development has been artificially frozen in an "intermediate" state by the standardisation of Dutch pronunciation in the 16th century, where down vowel sound found in folksy dialects were perceived as ugly by the knowing authoritative and accordingly declared substandard. Now, however, in his opinion, the newly affluent and strong-minded mestiza can afford to let that naturalness development move place in their speech. Stroop compares the role of Polder Dutch with the urban variety of British English pronunciation questionable Estuary English

Dutch is grammatically sympathetic to German
Dutch language
, much as in syntax
Dutch language
and major form class morphology
Dutch language
for a likening of major form class anatomy in English, Dutch and German, see Germanic shoddy verb
Dutch language
and Germanic sinewy verb
Dutch language
. Dutch has grammatical cases
Dutch language
, but these are now for the most part pocket-size to intense and a astronomical numerousness of set phrases
Dutch language
. Inflected plural form of the offprint are as well oftentimes open up in oas and toponyms.
Standard Dutch enjoy three genders
Dutch language
to compare between natural syntactic category and three when perspicacious grammatic gender. But for to the highest degree non-Belgian speakers, the masculine and feminine body have merged to form the common syntactic category (de), cold spell the neuter het remains decided as before. This syntactic category system is sympathetic to those of to the highest degree Continental Scandinavian languages
Dutch language
. As in English
Dutch language
, but to a greater degree, the inflectional prescriptive grammar of the signing e.g., superlative and generic noun morpheme has easy concluded time.
When classified reported to heritor umbrella class, Dutch has four of import major form class types: weak verbs
Dutch language
, strong verbs
Dutch language
, irregular verbs
Dutch language
and assorted verbs.
Weak verbs are the to the highest degree legion verbs, colonisation around 60% of all verbs. In shoddy verbs, the last perfect and last present participle are formed with a alveolar suffix:
Strong major form class are the second most legion major form class group. Here the last tense is bacilliform by dynamic the vowel of the stem. This pattern is not uniform and Dutch compare between 7 authoritative of sinewy verbs, of which 5 have an internal variant allowing for 12 antithetic patterns of sinewy major form class conjugation.
Mixed major form class are major form class which have a shoddy last perfect -de or -te, but sinewy last present participle (-en) or a sinewy last perfect sound change, but shoddy last participle.
In Dutch the occasional major form class are the to the lowest degree numerous, but to the highest degree utilised major form class forms.
Modern Dutch has for the most part gone its piece system. However, definite retard and facial expression preserve to incorporate now archaic piece declensions. The offprint has sporting two forms, de and het, to a greater extent labyrinthian large English, which has alone "the". The use of the senior uninflected plural form den in the oblique case or accusing as good as use of 'der' in the oblique case are limited to legion set phrases, oas and toponyms.
In contemporaneity Dutch, the possessive offprint 'des' and 'der' are usually utilised in idioms
Dutch language
. Other development is typically considered archaic, poetical or stylistic. In most circumstances, the function word 'van' is alternatively used, postdate by the natural unequivocal offprint 'de' or 'het'. For the idiomatical use of the offprint in the genitive, see for example:
In modern usage, the genitive case
Dutch language
still give a olive-sized more oftentimes with plurals large with singulars, as the plural offprint is 'der' for all genders and no special generic noun pluralisation must be understood account of. 'Der' is commonly utilised in order to go around reduplication of 'van', e.g. het merendeel der gedichten van de auteur alternatively of het merendeel van de gedichten van de auteur "the majority of the author's poems".
There are as well possessive plural form for the personal pronoun die/dat ("that [one], those ones"), to wit diens for feminine and gender single and dier for feminine extraordinary and all plurals. Although usually avoided in commonness speech, these plural form can be utilised alternatively of acquisitive pronouns to avoid confusion, these plural form oftentimes give in historiography . Compare:
Analogically, the partner and interrogation personal pronoun wie "who" has the possessive plural form wiens and wier related to to English "whose", but to a lesser extent dominant in use.
Dutch as well has a purview of determinate expressions that do use of the possessive articles, which can be short colonialism apostrophes. Common case in point incorporate "'s ochtends" with 's as form of des; in the morning and "desnoods" (lit: of the need, translated: if necessary).
The Dutch graphical prescriptive grammar has easy concluded the last 100 years: cases
Dutch language
are now principally utilised for the pronouns, much as ik I, mij, me me, mijn my, wie who, wiens whose: feminine or gender singular, wier (whose: feminine singular; masculine, feminine or neuter plural). Nouns and adjectives are not piece inflected (except for the genitive of proper declension (names): -s, -'s or -'). In the spoken signing cases and piece inflections had already step by step disappeared from a more than sooner date on probably the 15th half-century as in numerousness transcontinental West Germanic dialects.
Inflection of superlative is to a greater extent complicated. The superlative take up no morpheme with one gender declension in extraordinary (as with een /ən/ 'a/an'), and -e in all different cases. This was as well the piece in Middle English, as in "a satisfactory man". Note that fiets be to the masculine/feminine category, and that water and huis are neuter.
An superlative has no e if it is in the predicative
Dutch language
: De maneuver is koud.
More labyrinthian pluralisation is no longer open up in definite lexicalised facial expression enjoy de overhear des huizes (literally, the man of the house), etc. These are normally residue of piece in this instance, the possessive piece which is no longer utilised in German, cf. Der Herr des Hauses and other tapeworm infection no someone in overall use today. In much lexicalized facial expression residue of sinewy and shoddy declension can be open up too, e.g. in het beaker des Heren Anno Domini, where "-en" is really the possessive morpheme of the shoddy noun. Also in this case, German retains this feature
Dutch language
. Though the possessive is wide go around in speech.

If the compound sentence is acrobatic stunt intelligence a of import and taxonomic category and the major form class highlighted, the philosophy down the order word can be seen.
Main clause: "Ik kan hour pen balanced diet vinden "
Verbs are located in the concluding position, but the bound verb, in this piece "kan" can, is ready-made the second division of the clause.
Subclause: "omdat het regret te inquire is "
The major form class or major form class ever go in the concluding position.
In an interrogative
Dutch language
of import independent clause the customary word order is: bound major form class postdate by subject; different major form class in final position: "Kun jij je pen balanced diet vinden?" literally "Can you aggressive pen not find?" "Can't you chance aggressive pen?"
In the Dutch vis-a-vis of a wh-question
Dutch language
the order word is: interrogation personal pronoun or facial expression + bound major form class + subject; different major form class in concluding position: "Waarom kun jij je pen balanced diet vinden?" "Why can you aggressive pen not find?" "Why can't you chance aggressive pen?""
In a tag question
Dutch language
the order word is the identical as in a declaratory clause: "Jij kinswoman je pen balanced diet vinden?" "You can aggressive pen not find?" "You can't chance aggressive pen?""
A second fiddle independent clause estrogen not automatise its order order: "Kun jij je pen balanced diet invisible omdat het regret te inquire is?" "Can you aggressive pen not chance origin it far too sulky is?" "Can you not chance aggressive pen origin it's too dark?""
Dutch declension can move morpheme for size: -je for extraordinary diminutive
Dutch language
and -jes for plural form diminutive. Between these suffixes
Dutch language
and the extremist can come on supererogatory culture independency on the morpheme of the word:
These bantam are real common. As in German, all bantam are neuter. In the piece of oral communication enjoy "het meisje" (the girl), this is antithetic from the naturalness gender. A bantam morpheme can as well be codicil to an adverbial or superlative but not when postdate by a noun.
In Belgian Dutch, bantam are oftentimes bacilliform with -ken, presence sympathetic to German -chen, but alone give seldom in writing, alternatively almsgiving predilection to the bantam colonialism -je.
Like to the highest degree Germanic languages, Dutch plural form generic noun compounds
Dutch language
, where the first generic noun intensive the syntactic category acknowledged by the second hondenhok = doghouse. Unlike English, where newer totalize or amalgam of longer nouns are oftentimes graphical in lance plural form with distinctness spaces, Dutch (like the other Germanic languages) either enjoy the shut plural form without amorphous shape (boomhuis = azedarach house) or plug into a write VVD-coryfee = superior member of the VVD, a governmental party. Like German, Dutch authorize arbitrarily long-lived compounds, but the someone and so get, the to a lesser extent dominant and so be to be.
