Samenvatting

This chapter first introduces the physical, infrastructural and population characteristics of the Randstad in some detail, which explain the specific language variation situation in this area and the challenges it poses in the second part. The final part of the chapter provides specific illustration of urban language contact situation – from the cities of Rotterdam, Utrecht, and Amsterdam – which demonstrate the daily language use in the big cities within the region, the mechanisms of identity expression through language, and the coming to existence of language variation in neighbourhoods where speakers with different social orientations meet, interact, and assert themselves.
