What We Do
MaasGeluide, is a research project that has been started in 2017 to investigate/research upon dialects around the Limburg region and also provide resources for these dialects to be learned or practiced by people enthusiastic about knowing more about Limburgian dialects or what they sound like. This pilot version of the project focuses on the Mestreech and Eijsden dialect but hopefully we are looking to expand on to different other dialects in the future.
