Welcome to the Dutch Language Division of the Schools of Language and Literature and Linguistics. This topic addresses the study of the Dutch Language and its history and literature.
Dutch is a West Germanic language that originated in The Netherlands. It is spoken in The Netherlands, Belgium, Suriname, Aruba, Curaçao, Sint Maarten, and other nations.
Like divisions, subdivisions and departments are pages in the Topic namespace, and their names start with the "Topic:" prefix. Individual departments can be used by multiple schools. Schools that use (link to) the same department should cooperate to develop the department. Subdivisions are used by large divisions to help organize related departments. Not all divisions have subdivisions. If you need a subdivision in your division, you can use the Template:Subdivision boilerplate template to start a subdivision.
