Lowlands-L, an e-mail discussion list for people who share an interest in Lowlands languages and cultures

What are "Lowlands languages and cultures"?

"Lowlands languages" are those Germanic languages that developed in the "Lowlands": the low-lying areas adjacent to the North Sea and the Baltic Sea. These are primarily Dutch, Frisian, and Low Saxon (Low German). Also included are those languages that descended from autochtonous Lowlands languages and are used elsewhere; for example, Afrikaans, Emigre Dutch/Frisian/Low Saxon, Lowlands-based pidgins and creoles, and also English and Scots. "Lowlands cultures" are those cultures that use Lowlands languages or are clearly derived from such cultures.
