Lowlands-L is an automated worldwide electronic mail list for those who are interested in the languages and cultures of the lowlands adjacent to the coast of the North Sea and of Baltic Sea (the “Lowlands”).
The primary focus of Lowlands-L is
on the Germanic languages and their cultural environments that developed and
remain in the Lowlands (Dutch, Flemish, Zeelandic, Frisian, Low Saxon [Low German], Limburgish) as well as those that descended from these languages or from their predecessors
and are used elsewhere (Afrikaans, Lowlands emigré varieties, Lowlands-based pidgins and creoles, and also English and Scots). Other languages and their cultural environments may be discussed within this
