About the lecture

With this presentation, Prof. Ingrid Tieken takes you on a virtual route along the proverbs in 33 different languages (many of which of course European) leading from Hollands Spoor Station to China Town, and back. She will also explain how the  Spreukenroute website works, which will be online by then.

In addition, she published her book Languages of The Hague (also in Dutch: Haagse Talen) this summer. It contains linguistic portraits of over thirty speakers from The Hague.
