Despite or because of intensive contact?
Internal, external and extralinguistic aspects of divergence in modern dialects and ethnolects of Dutch
The paper opens with a discussion of some key notions; in this connection a proposal is made to distinguish two different types of hyperdialectism. Subsequently, a two-pronged hypothesis and a methodological consideration are presented. Attention will then be paid to four different studies of nonstandard varieties of present-day Dutch. Three of these concern endogenous dialects, the fourth one deals with two modern ethnolects; in the presentation of the dialect studies, the geographical perspective will gradually widen. In all four studies, attention will focus on instances of variation and change in the sound components which can be analyzed as divergence. Finally, the findings from the cases studied will be discussed against the background of the hypothesis. Special attention will be paid to the role the two types of hyperdialectisms may have played and to a recent proposal by Labov.
