Origins of the Dutch language and accent
Dutch is spoken mainly in the Netherlands, which is in North West Europe, it’s capital is Amsterdam. You can also hear the Dutch language in Belgium.
The language which is taught in schools is called General Civilised Dutch or Standard Dutch. Dutch spoken in Belgium is called Flemish and there are some differences in the languages in both pronunciation and vocabulary.
The Dutch language is said to share features with German and English. There are a number of Dutch dialects including Friesland which is a bilingual region where they speak the West Frisian language and Dutch. There is also East and West Flemish, Brabantian and Limburgish amongst others. In Holland they speak Hollandic.
You can even hear a Dutch dialect in South Africa. Afrikaans is heavily influenced by Dutch and this is due to the fact that the Dutch colonised South Africa. Many Dutch speakers can understand Afrikaans and vice versa.
The first known Germanic tribes that settled in land that was between the lower and middle Rhine. They were known as Franks. The Franks lived in what is now the Netherlands, Belgium and Northern France. They ruled most of Western Europe and it is thought that the Franks, along with the Frisians and the Saxons, are the original ancestors of the Dutch people.
Another place you can still hear the Dutch dialect is in New Jersey in the United States. It was originally spoken by Dutch settlers and African-American slaves. Listen to English spoken with a Dutch accent in this interview with Racing Driver, Robert Doornbos.
