De Sociolinguïstiek in Het Nederlandse Taalgebied Anno 2006
This article presents an overview of sociolinguistic research in the Dutch-speaking community of The Netherlands and Belgium. The overview is based on the contributions to the 5th Sociolinguistic Conference held in March, 2006, after four earlier conferences in 1991, 1995, 1999 and 1993. Compared to the earlier conferences, the 2006 conference shows roughly the same distribution of topics. Content-wise, no great changes have taken place. In terms of numbers of participants and papers, however, a decrease in the number of participants was observed, which was mainly due to a smaller number of Belgian participants. Fortunately, the quantity of the output did not really suffer from this decrease.
