Abstract

The dialects in Flanders are quickly losing ground while the standard language and, especially,
the so-called ‘tussentaal’ are spreading rapidly. The language choices parents
make every day, influence very strongly the future language and dialect situation in Flanders.
In a study concerning the spontaneous language in four Flemish families, we have
attempted to line out the accommodation and the language attitudes of the parents and the
children. The fathers and the mothers adapt their language and dialect use in a totally different
way according to the person they are speaking to: a younger or an older child, a boy
or a girl. This remarkably differentiated attitude probably has some influence on the language
of the children. Anyhow, we can distinguish different reactions and language patterns
among the children, in the various family conversations.
