Mike, just got an email from Larry H. Larry is in Norway and BJ is in Russia. They almost have all the details worked out and will let me know when the info can be released. Application form will be on the World Team web site.

Any plans for a big demo this time Kate ? - if so, will it be before or after the 400-ways ?

I thought Flemish was a Belgian language, related to Dutch but different?

Re: [skytash] World Team 2006? [In reply to] Can't Post

Vlaams (Flemish) is not a language it's a dialect.


From Wikepedia:
Dutch (Nederlands) is a West Germanic, Low German language spoken worldwide by around 24 million people, mostly in the Netherlands and Belgium. The varieties of Dutch spoken in Belgium are also informally called Flemish (Vlaams). Dutch is sometimes called Netherlandic in English.

Flemish (Vlaams) is the term used for the various dialects of Dutch spoken in Belgium. Most Flemings consider themselves to be speakers of Dutch as do most linguists. An exception is SIL International, which has classified the the dialect group as a separate language and granted it a unique language code.
