Dutch language, origin and dialects spoken over the world.
Origin and history
The Traditional Dutch language emerged since and after the 16th century. The traditional Dutch language was mainly used from Brabantian and later some Hollandish dialects from post 16th century. The present Dutch language originated from Old dialects spoken in the Low Countries that were recorded in the Salic law, a Frankish manuscript written in 510.
A further step was taken in 1637 towards a cohesive language when the first Dutch Bible was translated and called “the Statenvertaling” was printed so that people from all over the world could understand.
It consisted of elements from several dialects, however the spoken form was primarily based on the urban dialects. It is said – Dutch was born in Flanders, grown-up in Brabant and matured in Holland.
Dutch is spoken by most people in Netherlands and Belgium. It is the first language of 24 million and second language for 5 million people in these two countries. It is a West Germanic language and is widely spoken after English and German.
Dutch is considered a national language in Suriname, Netherlands, South America, and Belgium. Although Dutch is an official language in Brussels or Suriname, there are several other languages that are spoken there as well.
Dutch is also spoken relatively in a small part of France along the North Sea that is located to the west of Belgium. The English speakers generally call the language of the Netherlands as “Dutch” and language of Belgium as “Flemish,” however they are the same language.
Spoken Dutch language exists in many varieties. Standard Dutch is used for public and official purposes, including schools and universities. Additionally, a wide variety of local dialects are used in informal situations, such as among family, friends, and people from other neighbouring villages.
There are considerable number of Dutch speakers in Germany France, Canada, Indonesia and the United States. There are older native speakers in the United States, Australia, New Zealand, and Canada as many Dutch people migrated to these countries in the 1950’s.
