2019 (English)In: European Pluricentric Languages in Contact and Conflict / [ed] Rudolf Muhr, Josep Àngel Mas Castells, Jack M Rueter, Vienna: Peter Lang Publishing Group, 2019, p. 65-80Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

In 2003, the Nederlandse Taalunie, officially recognised that the Dutch language area is pluricentric with "two equal national varieties" [own translation] (Nederlandse Taalunie 2003) in Europe: Belgian Dutch and Netherlandic Dutch. In reality however, Netherlandic Dutch was the dominant variety. Evidence of this could be found in lexicography, but also in literature and literary translation. Nevertheless, the status of the non-dominant Belgian Dutch variety is changing. This chapter looks at recent changes in lexicography and norm-adherence in Belgium with regard to the use of the Belgian national variety. It illustrates how the attitude towards and the status of non-dominant varieties, just like languages, are in constant flux. This may eventually result in a shift from "asymmetrical pluricentricity" towards more "symmetrical pluricentricity".
