Vlamingen en hun (tussen)taal een attitudineel mixed guise-onderzoek

Dirk Speelman


In this mixed guise study, a group of West-Flemish and Limburgish young
adults were asked to judge four audio recordings, one of which was spoken in
the standard variety and three of which were spoken in various regional colloquial
varieties (namely Brabantish, West-Flemish and Limburgish). By
means of a principal component analysis, we identified three dimensions
underlying the different attitudes towards the linguistic varieties mentioned
above (viz. a status-dimension, a social attractiveness-dimension and a personal
integrity-dimension) instead of the classic dichotomy status versus solidarity.
Furthermore, the variables "region" and "sex" were found to trigger significant
attitudinal differences.
