As a Dutch speaking guy, can I enter on this site (if realized)?

Proposal: Dutch Language

Yes; the language sites on Stack Exchange are full of native speakers. They tend to provide most of the answers, while non-native speakers ask the most questions, but some interesting questions about etymology or linguistic features of a language are asked by native speakers. And even questions about typical pitfalls for learners of that language, perhaps self-answered.

  • So, I'm, in that case, a kinda teacher? Who always has to learn because of keeping up. – Deschele Schilder Sep 6 at 11:16
  • @descheleschilder yes, exactly. – Glorfindel Sep 6 at 12:42
  • Also you will be able to use your StackExchange community reputation as a good indicator of you as a teacher. Let's make it happen! :) – greatromul Oct 8 at 15:45

Please do! And bring as many other native speakers as you can :-)

In addition to what Glorfindel said I would like to point out that even native speakers may have specific questions: a proficient command of the language does not imply that you can make the rules of the language explicit. After all, most people are not linguists.

  • Dat is duidelijk. Ik weet echter niet (of beter gezegd, ik ken niemand) hoe ik andere mensen hierbij moet betrekken of mee kan laten doen. Ik ken wel mensen Natuurlijk (with a capital N), maar die zijn hierin niet geïnteresseerd. Do you understand what I wrote? – Deschele Schilder Sep 6 at 15:31

    @descheleschilder Natuurlijk :-) Ik heb een Japanse username, maar mijn moedertaal is Nederlands. – Tsundoku Sep 6 at 15:32
  • Wat betekent "Tsundoku"? ;-) – Deschele Schilder Sep 6 at 16:08
  • @descheleschilder Het kopen van boeken die zich opstapelen zonder gelezen te worden. (Zie ook Wikipedia.) – Tsundoku Sep 6 at 16:30
  • Aha! Ik begrijp het. Ik kende ooit iemand die een kast vol boeken had waarvan het leeuwendeel nog in plastic...Wij gaan een wandelingetje doen in het bos. Leuk je gesproken te hebben! – Deschele Schilder Sep 6 at 16:33
