6WSC: Dialect

My own entry in the Six Word Story Challenge: Dialect



image: Limburgse Dialecten

The dialect we speak at home – at my parents’ house in Limburg- is very different from the ‘normal’ Dutch that is spoken where I live now, in the south-west of the Netherlands. Though Friesland is the only province to have its own official language, Limburg has several dialects, as you can see in the image above. I come from the region Heële, in the south-east of Holland, near the German border.

And the minute I talk to my parents, to my siblings, in our dialect Limburgs, I’m transported back home. In a flash, a family feeling arises. And I treasure that so very much.

How about you? Do you have a dialect where you were born? And is that different from the language/dialect you speak these days?
