    Thanks again for the warm welcome

    Welkom aan boord. Say hello to Valkenburg for me!
    I'll do that! It's a very nice town and I like to go there now and then.

    My grandparents speak Plat, and I speak it a little.
    Do you know from which region or town the dialect you and your grandparents speak is? I find it quite fascinating how almost each town(or at least a bunch of villages) has a distinct dialect.

    They come from Simpelveld.
    A very pretty place, they even made their own website.

    Very nice.

    I already wrote something about the region in the other thread concerning this region(I read your post there after I asked the question here). But I would like to add that I'm pretty sure that the dialect of Simpelveld is Ripuarian.
    I've been there myself a while ago and it is indeed a very pretty place I have to say.

    Are you sure they speak Ripuarian? I'll ask my grandparents the next-time I see them if I've been giving their dialect the wrong name by accident.
    (I find the Dutch dialects amazing, every town has it's own.)

    LOL, that's so very true. My province alone (an area smaller than the country of Luxembourg) has six minilanguages of its own - these tongue breakers are a riddle to foreigners.

    There's a lot of pride taken in the city one inhabits and the language it speaks - it commands some sort of loyalty - a remainder of medieval times, with a continuing echo. Cities like Gent and Brugge were topdog in those days.

    This is a sample of the language people in my city of birth speak, Aalst, called Oilsjt in the noble Oilsjterse language (and except for a couple of villages in suburbia, all in all a couple of 10.000 speakers, nobody else speaks it):

    aaft insj op, god oon (Hou op, gedaan = quit it, enough)
    aal dagge zeit kaanek ni verstoon (Al wat jij zegt kan ik niet verstaan = everything you say I can't understand)
    klapt Oilsjters, anzjevei (Spreek Aalsters, en zever = Talk Aalsters, and bullshit)
    aal da ni van ier es kaan ni mei (Wie niet van hier is kan niet mee = Everybody who's not from here doesn't get it)
    klapt grat insj in 't plat (Spreek snel eens plat = Talk dialect now)
    gelek as oever t woater of de sjikke kant van 't stad (Zoals zij van over 't water, of de chique mensen van 't stad = Like those who live across the water or the upper class from the city) Note: the Dender river is the historical barrier between the poor and wealthy people of Aalst.
    ni simpel as ge 't sprekt (Niet simpel om te spreken = ...not simple to speak...)
    effenaf e gralek zjarig dialect (helemaal een geheel plezant dialect = ...A totally fly dialect!)

    aa jonges 'k hem 't a gezeit
    in 't Oilsjters
    me hannen en voeten oitgeleid
    in 't Oilsjters

    kekt hein
    'k gon 't eir zeggen he
    oigenlek alle
    foitelek he

    'k was insj iet ni zeiker
    'k vroeg et oon den beste spreiker
    van ons tool
    de Jang Loeis
    ej wetje goi wa da beter es
    een misjol, een prit
    noemde da een veireprot
    of is 't een mit
    smirza, gerre, zwozze, moisken
    wedje wat em zei
    e keirkepitjen is beiter mor 't is allemol goe ver moi


    The Oilsjteneirs think of themselves as very important too, if there was something like an 'urban superiority' movement instead of a 'white superiority' one, Aalst would be the leading proponent of this ideology. Without joking or being ironic, this city has rewritten the classic song 'Land of hope and glory', and renamed it 'Oilsjt Stad Van Men Droeimen' (Aalst, city of my dreams) ... and when the assembled populace sings the song on the last day of carnaval, the entire city is emotional and crying tears of pride.

    Only in Flanders.
