Abstract
It has been hypothesized that the inherently variable and heterogeneous Flemish tussentaal, the supralocal colloquial variety of Dutch, is subject to a (sub)standardization process (Taeldeman 2008). This paper reports on the use of twelve supposedly pan-Flemish substandard features by Flemish teenagers in a large corpus of informal chat conversations (more than two million words), in which both the central Brabantic area and the eastern and western peripheral provinces are represented. It investigates the extent to which the data corroborate this homogenization hypothesis. From a methodological point of view, it intends to check whether research on written chat data offers a valid alternative for variational linguistic research on spoken language.
