    Limburg allein


    1. Dao, woo ich geboare bin
    Woo m'n awwesjhoes nog steijt
    De taal, die ich toch zo gouwd kin
    Woo ich haw mien leijf en leijd
    Limburg, Limburg allein
    Dao geit niks boave

    Es mie awd Limburg,
    Limburg allein
    Dao geit niks boave
    Zo is t'r mer ein.

    2. Gaon ich nao de vreamde hear
    Of wiet oet Limburg weg
    Heur ich immer toch zo gear
    't Gowd, 't kaod, 't slech.
    Limburg, Limburg allein
    Dao geit niks boave

    Limburg allein

    Zo is t'r mer ein.
    Es mie awd Limburg,
    Limburg allein
    Dao geit niks boave
    Zo is t'r mer ein.


    This song, composed and sung by Jo Erens (1928-1955), first as "Zitterd Allein", later as "Limburg allein", written in Limburgian from Sittard, became "the" song of all Limburgians from both countries, Belgium and the Netherlands.
    Quoted from: Het Belang van Limburg, April 12, 1996, Achterkrant, p. 39.

    The maps on that Limburgish site are unfortunately all moved. Limburgish is, as far as I know, limited in Belgium and the Netherlands to that comparatively small edge which is in this map here south of the red ik/ich borderline, isn't it?

    Well, it flares slightly in Brabant(Getelandish with main cities:Tienen, Zoutleeuw, Landen...), then there's an incission unto the northern half of the Walloon province of Lige(the region of Overmaas) and fanning out a bit in Nordrhein-Westphalen, including Dsseldorf/Dusseldorp, though belonging to a transitional zone between East Limburgish and Ripuarian dialects.

    Post Re: Limburg allein

    To satisfy your curiousity about how this regional language might sound with its almost lyrical taw-and-push musicality, I searched for some audio files to represent Limburgish. The files were too large to upload them here; sadly, I also lost the link where I retrieved the mp3's.

    Anyway, click on the purple sentences to listen for the dialect of Neerwinden (the municipaly is located in the province of Brabant) here

    Another example of Limburgish, the dialect of Hasselt, capital of the Belgian province of Limburg:



    Hommage an Van Veldeke

    Heinric van Veldeke was a poet who started his career in the Hasselt-Maastricht area; later he moved to Thringen in Germany. The song is a collection of reflections at the statue of Van Veldeke in Hasselt.

    Stil, had oech stil,
    Van Veldeke s an 't schrve
    De iste gediechskes n het Nederlands
    Ssst... 't zn gediechskes dee mutte blve!
    Kiek mar god, het s or indjigste kans.
    Stil, had oech stil, het s an 't gebeere...
    De muze s b Hendrik op vezit
    Dje zit hem diechte n geeren en kleere

    Koemp dj'obbe Rddelberg b volle moan
    Blf dan ins effekes b Van Veldeke stoan
    Zt oech doa ins vf menite dl
    B den iste serieuze poeet van s tl.
    Want as de moan zoe tsse z'n oge blienk
    - Da meug dje ech ni ratre! -
    Da zit dje, da hij an diechte dienk
    En dan, joa dan meug dj'hem ni drangere!

    Stil, had oech stil,
    Van Veldeke s an 't schrve
    De iste gediechskes n 't Nederlands
    Ssst... 't zn gediechskes dee mutte blve!
    Kiek mar god, het s or indjigste kans.
    Stil, had oech stil, het s an 't gebeere...
    De muze s b Hendrik op vezit
    Dje zit hem diechte n geeren en kleere:
    Het wird hil zeker e lifdeslid
