Abstract and Keywords

This chapter concerns phonological and phonetic databases at the Meertens Institute in Amsterdam. Originally, the institute had as its primary goal the documentation of the traditional dialects as well as folk culture of the Netherlands, but in the course of time this focus has broadened in several ways and goes beyond traditional dialects. Van Oostendorp’s contribution seeks to describe the two most important databases on Dutch dialects which are available at the Meertens Institute: the Goeman-Taeldeman-Van Reenen Database and Soundbites. He concludes by presenting new research areas at the Meertens Institute and by pointing out some desiderata concerning them.

Keywords: Dutch dialects, Flemish dialects, SAMPA, transcription, dialectology
