The Dutch Annual Linguistics Day 2021 (DALD2021) will be held on Friday 4 February 2022. The DALD is a day on which we can see and speak to all our colleagues in the Netherlands and Flanders and inform each other about current research in linguistics. We are therefore organising a very varied programme with lectures, coffee moments, the Taalgala, and a surprising keynote presentation.



The costs for the entire day are €25 for senior AVT/Anéla-members, €20 for junior AVT/Anéla-members (PhD candidats, students and non-employed linguists) and €50 for non-members. Included are: lunch, coffee and tea, and a reception. We would like to ask you to register and pay the registration fee before 21 January 2022 at the latest (through the AVT website – registration form will be opened in December 2021).


Submit abstract for lecture

Any AVT or Anéla member wishing to give a lecture at the DALD can submit an abstract of up to 170 words via the website of the AVT till 15 December 2021. The lecture will be a 20-minute lecture + 5-minute for discussion

– If you are planning or willing to give your lecture in English, you can indicate this with an English title and summary instead of a Dutch one.

– You may submit a maximum of 2 abstracts (1 as first author, 1 as co-author).

If you do not receive confirmation of receipt of your abstract, please contact Jenneke van der Wal ( If there are more speakers than places in the program, the most recently received abstracts will be included as ‘alternates’.

The program booklet (including abstracts) will appear on the AVT website in January and be sent by e-mail to all registered participants (at that time) and all AVT and Anéla members.


What is the Dutch Annual Linguistics Day?

The DALD is a joint initiative of the Association for General Lingusitics (AVT), Association for Applied Linguistics (Anéla) and the National Linguistics Research School (LOT). The DALD brings together the AVT TIN (Linguistics in the Netherlands) day, the Anéla TTiN (Applied Linguistics in the Netherlands) day and the Taalgala (Language Gala), where the AVT/Anéla Dissertation Prize and the LOT popularisation prize are awarded.



AVT members can submit a written version of their presentation after the DALD for Linguistics in the Netherlands, an internationally read and peer-reviewed series published by Benjamins. Linguistics in the Netherlands has a short publication process: the LIN volume will be published no longer than six months after completion of the review procedure. A new advantage is that every LIN-bundle is accessible open access via Benjamins’ website two years after its publication.

Anéla members can submit a written version of their presentation for The Dutch Journal of Applied Linguistics (DuJAL, recently fully open access).



Procedures for registration will be announced at a later date.
