Flemish (оr Belgisch-Nederlands, pronounced [ˈbɛl̪giʃ ˈn̪eːd̪ərl̪ɑn̪t̪s̪] in Flemish), also known as Belgian Dutch, is the Dutch language as spoken in Flanders, the northern part of Belgium. The adjective Flemish (first attested as flemmysshe, c. 1325) meaning “from Flanders”, was probably borrowed from Old Frisian. There are four principal Dutch dialects in Flanders: Brabantian, East Flemish, West Flemish, and Limburgish. Generally Flemish includes more French loanwords in its everyday vocabulary than does Netherlands Dutch.
