West Flemish

West Flemish (in West Flemish, Vlaemsch) is a Low Franconian dialect spoken in parts of the Netherlands, Belgium, and France. It is sometimes called Flemish (in West Flemish, Vlaams), but that term is more often used simply for those dialects of Dutch that are spoken in Belgium.

West Flemish is spoken by around 1.05 million people in West Flanders (in Belgium), 220,000 in the neighbouring Dutch coastal district of Zeeuws-Vlaanderen, and 20,000 in the northern part of the French département of Nord.
