Dutch Annual Linguistics Day

[menu theme_location=’grote-taaldag’]

The Dutch Annual Linguistics Day 2021 (DALD2021) will be held on Friday 29 January 2021. Because of the COVID-19 rules and guidelines, we have decided to keep the DALD  fully online for the first time. But that doesn’t make it any less fun! The DALD will remain 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 and applied linguistics. We are therefore organising a very varied programme with lectures, pecha kuchas, digital coffee moments, the Taalgala, and a surprising keynote presentation.


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. The venue will be ‘online’ for the first time this year.



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).
