Dutch Annual Linguistics Day

The next Dutch Annual Linguistics Day, co-organised by AVT, LOT and Anéla, will be held on Friday January 31 2020. The Dutch Annual Linguistics Day combines the AVT TIN-dag (Linguistics-in-the-Netherlands day) and the Anéla TTiN-dag (Applied-Linguistics-in-the-Netherlands day) and the ‘Taalgala’, where the LOT outreach prize and the AVT/Anéla Dissertation Prize are awarded. The date breaks with tradition (Friday instead of Saturday), a change whose impact will be closely monitored. The location is still the same: Drift 21 in Utrecht.

We are proud to announce the DALD2020 keynote lecture will be given by Pia Quist from the University of Copenhagen (website).


Abstract submission

All AVT and Anéla members are invited to submit an abstract for the Grote Taaldag 2019. Abstracts should be submitted between November 6 and December 16 2019 (deadline extended!). They should not exceed 170 words, and must be submitted here. Members can submit no more than 2 abstracts (1 as first author, 1 as co-author). Talks last 20 minutes, plus 5 minutes for questions.

In case you do not receive an automatic confirmation of your submission, please contact Bert Le Bruyn ( The available slots in the programme will be filled on a first-come-first-served basis.

The programme will appear in January on the AVT website and will be sent to AVT and Anéla members by e-mail.



The registration fee is €25 for senior AVT/Anéla members,  €20 for junior AVT/Anéla members (PhD students, (Re)MA students and unaffiliated linguists) and €50 for non-members. The fee includes lunch, coffee and tea, and drinks afterwards. You are kindly requested to register and pay the conference fee by bank transfer between November 6 and January 10. For registration, please go here; payment details are provided on the registration form.



AVT members are invited to submit a written version of their talk to Linguistics in the Netherlands (LIN). Anéla members can submit a written version of their talk for publication in The Dutch Journal of Applied Linguistics (DuJAL). Both LIN and DuJAL are published by Benjamins. LIN articles become open access two years after publication. DuJAL articles are open access as of publication.


We hope to see you in Utrecht on January 31!
